Toddle Time

Toddle Time is a class designed especially for you and your toddler.

Children and parents will work through guided activities including yoga, stretching, and strengthening under the great big STORY TREE, tumbling through the Ship Shape Health Challenge, and using our imagination, as we climb the Storybook Climber. Of course there will be much, much, more!!
