Unlike many other parent & me classes, our sessions run for a full semester during the school year (with a special discounted school year option, plus a 10-week summer session), and classes are offered up to twice a week, giving young children for whom Wallaby is probably their first school-like experience the opportunity to develop real relationships with the other children and grownups in their class, and to fully engage in the important confidence-building and joyful experiences that will support their eventual transition to preschool.
Equally important is the fact that the longer sessions and more frequent classes offer participating parents and caregivers a unique and much-needed opportunity to meet and truly connect with other adults who are experiencing the same joys and challenges related to caring for young children.
Wallaby helps both children and their grownups to develop close friendships that can last a lifetime.
Choose the once- or twice-a-week schedule that works best for your family. You are welcome to mix and match classes (e.g., one morning class and one afternoon class, one Little Joeys and one Mixed Joeys, etc.). Please visit our Forms page to sign up, or if you’d like to get to know us better before enrolling, please contact us to schedule your free trial class. Combining drop-off playtime (our weekly child care service) with our parent & me classes is a great way to help your child get used to separating.

***Our weekly child care service: Have you fallen behind on trips to your dentist/doctor/hair salon? Do you have a ton of errands to catch up on? Or could you use a little you time? Leave your little one with us for up to three hours, and our experienced caregivers will make sure he’s safe and happy. It’s as affordable, easier, and way more fun than getting a sitter. Available for children 0-5 years old. RSVP required (no drop-ins) and space is limited to 10 children, so please contact us as least one week in advance to let us know if you would like us to hold a spot for your child. Please note that you DO NOT need to be enrolled in a parent & me class to use drop-off playtime.
Mid-session enrollment is welcome, space permitting. Please contact us to find out if there is room in your preferred class(es).
