Cincinnati & NKY Guide to Toddler Enrichment

0
This guide is brought to you by our wonderful sponsors featured here!

If you are a mama, then you know there is so much truth to the saying, “The years are short, but the days are long”. And if you are a mama to one of those pint-sized littles, you know how important it can be to get them (and you!) out of the house when those days are feeling extra long. The answer, for many, is enrichment classes.

Whether it be music, gymnastics, art, or more – it is nice to give those toddlers some social interaction with other kids their age and for mama to have interaction with other adults and a fun break in the daily routine.

There is something for every little one on this list!

And if you have bigger kids… check out our Kids Activities Guide for more options.

IGKnight Music and Movement

Ignite your baby’s body and mind while experiencing music and movement together! You and your child will strengthen your everlasting bond while exploring age-appropriate instruments, songs, stories, movement, and dance. Activities are designed to stimulate children from birth to 24 months and can be replicated at home.

The 45-minute class meets weekly on Monday or Wednesday mornings over three sessions (fall, winter, & spring) and are ideal for grandparents and caregivers.

Check out this video to see the fun in action!

“Ms. Donna delights children with her high-energy approach to music education. She greets parents and students by name in a warm and genuine manner. She expertly modifies instruction to fit the needs of the energetic and busy toddlers in her classroom. Curriculum is rich and purposeful, and the children demonstrate understanding in unique ways. Thank you, Ms. Donna!” – S. McGuffey
