When Kane was a baby, my husband took him to a trial class at Kidville. He loved it and we said we'd revisit it when he was a little older. Cassie and I both had the pleasure of trying some age-appropriate classes for Kane and Eliza and it was a huge hit with both kids!
Kane and I first attended Big Muscle Builders class with Mr. Carlos and it was amazing! I've never seen him so engaged and so great at following directions with the obstacle course in ANY organized play! Mr. Carlos was great with him and all the kids and Kane genuinely seemed sad to leave the class at the end of the hour. We will DEFINITELY be enrolling in this class in the fall! Did I mention I got a 3 hour nap from him after the class ended??
Next, we took Run, Wiggle, Paint and Giggle. He also was incredibly engaged with the themed class. Our class was about the sun. The kids had free play, followed by reading a story about the sun, sun themed activities with yellow balls and discs, creating a sun with paint and tissue paper, and ending with a music class that he could dance his little heart out to. Somehow these people can all get him to clean up when he's told to...perhaps they can move in with me!
Cassie took Eliza to Rockin' Railroad which had a 4 piece live band. The class was engaging and exciting for the kids. There is definitely something more exciting and even educational about having live music- Eliza was mesmerized by it! The class leader was upbeat, bubbly and so interactive with every single kid there. She really took the time to look each child in the eyes and sing directly to them.
Big Muscle Playtime was up next! There was so much to do, all of the kids there were bursting to try it all out! The two teachers did their best to guide the children from activity to activity, and were very encouraging and excited about each kid’s accomplishments.
