    JOIN US for a fun morning of MOVEZ for mom and baby! 

    Have a lot of fun, while making new friends and doing something amazing for your babies development!!


    This program focuses on our baby’s mobility, strength, coordination and stability. Each week targets a different area of development so we can provide a sensory rich environment that stimulates their brain. Some skills include rotations, balancing exercises and weight bearing tricks that parents can even help their little ones do at home. We will also have parachute play and bubble time at the end to work on tracking ability and rhythmic play for a fun filled class.

    This class is appropriate for babies ages 4-12 months!  Toddlers looking for some extra development also welcome!

    Looking for an opportunity to get out the house with your baby?

    Come out and have a fun and relaxing time with other moms and their babies.

    We will sing songs to entertain the little ones and also have some sharing of discussion topics for mommies. We'll learn some basic sign language to help babies communicate and incorporate some of the newly learned signs into songs.

    So come out and enjoy some social time for yourself and for your baby.

    We will meet in the creative worship room, which offers a carpeted space with tons of room for roaming babies to practice rolling/crawling/walking their gross motor skills.

    This program is FREE and is meant for moms with babies from 0-18 months.
