There is an emphasis on creativity and building confidence through songs, stories, and performance. Each week we’ll read a new story and then explore the movement and adventures of the characters. Kids have the opportunity to show off their favorite moves, invent characters, and try lots of new movement ideas.

If your kid is a confident walker and starting to explore movement such as running, tip toes, backwards, and spinning, then they could be a good match to take our classes.

Sensory Explorers

Led by an occupational therapist, this workshop will have children of all “abilities” play together to experience various sensory integration strategies to help increase self regulation, and to prepare children for learning and playing in a group setting. Use of large movement motor activities will be used to start off the class to help calm, and organize the brain/body to help prepare the child to focus at a more structured activity. This will lead us to focus more on sensory input such as use of shaving cream, slime, putty, cotton balls, glitter, glue, food, and other items that may be new textures for some and that can be difficult for others to tolerate. The class will focus on social skills, including: sharing items, use of eye contact and word use between the children in the class. This class is supposed to be super fun, exciting, and most importantly silly! Extra time for Q + A provided, as well as take home materials.

+ $20 per child

+ best for ages 3-5 but 2 year old children welcome per parent discretion

+ pre-registration required

+ onward mama scholarship available. call or inquire within

+ instructor: Ilana Segal

*** Kith + Kin is closed to the general public on Mondays, which allows for a more relaxed, sensory appropriate environment. Music will be off and no other children besides those participating in class will be present.

Tiny Home Ec (3 wk series)

In this three part series, each class engages in an open-ended playtime with a focus on understanding responsibility and teamwork in the home. Toddlers aged 2-4 are welcome to explore their role in the family and what they can do to help out. Be prepared to get a little messy as we wash the laundry and set the table, maybe even share a snack together!

Class one: Tidy up!

In this introduction to Tiny Home Ec, we will discover new ways to help out and have fun doing so. Your child can try their hand at sorting, washing, drying & dusting. Each participant will take home their own essential oil spray for tidying up at home!

Class Two: What's for dinner?

In this class centered around the family meal, we will choose our recipes, shop, prep & serve. We will all be encouraged to tidy up after a snack. Each participant will take home a place mat & reusable utensils to encourage their involvement at meal times. *allergen-friendly & vegan

Class Three: Don't throw it, fix it!

So many of our belongings could have a new life, if we just knew how to mend & repair. In this class, we will put our hammers to the test and build a structure, work our fine motors with sewing and weaving as well as an electronic demonstration. Each participant will take home a hand-made sewing card kit.

+ $36 for three part series (Fridays - November 29th, December 27th, January 31st)

Sensory Explorers

Led by an occupational therapist, this workshop will have children of all “abilities” play together to experience various sensory integration strategies to help increase self regulation, and to prepare children for learning and playing in a group setting. Use of large movement motor activities will be used to start off the class to help calm, and organize the brain/body to help prepare the child to focus at a more structured activity. This will lead us to focus more on sensory input such as use of shaving cream, slime, putty, cotton balls, glitter, glue, food, and other items that may be new textures for some and that can be difficult for others to tolerate. The class will focus on social skills, including: sharing items, use of eye contact and word use between the children in the class. This class is supposed to be super fun, exciting, and most importantly silly! Extra time for Q + A provided, as well as take home materials.

+ $20 per child

+ best for ages 3-5 but 2 year old children welcome per parent discretion

+ pre-registration required

+ onward mama scholarship available. call or inquire within

Intermediate ZoomDance (6 wk. series 3/6)

Intermediate ZoomDance is an older-kid version of ZoomDance with a focus on exploring new movement ideas. This class will be high energy, joyful, creative, and a ton of fun. We will start to push the edges of dancing the spectrum from wild abandon to careful details, and we'll work on connecting these movements in to full dances. Over the course of the session, children will develop agility, coordination, rhythm, and balance through a dynamic range of actions. There is an emphasis on creativity and building confidence through songs, stories, and performance. When acting out a new story each week, our teachers will encourage students to offer their own ideas too. Grown ups are invited in on the last day to see what we've been working on.

+ $90 6 wk. series / $17 drop-in / pro-rated series option available!
