Join Fun Play Dates at Bay & Bee!

20140202-DSC_5427w

Play isn’t just for fun,  play is how your child learns how to engage with the world.  It teaches them social, emotional and problem solving skills that will be beneficial for the rest of their lives.

Play Dates are designed to bring together parents/grandparents/sitters of similar age children. It’s not a structured class but more of a hang out and get together.  Each age group has a weekly time for their play date (All ages are still welcome to enjoy the play space).

They are wonderful opportunity for children to make friends and grown ups meet other caregivers. We have seen many moms, dads, grandmothers and sitters meet at Bay & Bee and becoming friends, enjoying meetings at each other’s houses, parks or grabbing coffee/breakfast together on their way to or from Bay & Bee, as well as going out without kids in the evenings!

It’s been amazing to watch incredible friendships formed during play dates among children and their caregivers, whether they are new to Jax, new to parenting or simply enjoying their kids play with other kids their age.

October Infant Special

Happy International Baby Wearing Week!!

babywearing special offer

Last week we celebrated Jacksonville’s kick off baby wearing event and it was amazing to see so many new faces and new moms!
The moby wrap was my gateway into baby wearing 4 years ago! It has made my life so much easier and the hands free cuddle time has been invaluable.
For the month of October, when you sign up for an infant membership (birth to crawling) we will give you a moby wrap as a baby wearing gift!

$35 registration fee, $45/month to month.
(Moby valued at 49.95)

 

Membership to Bay & Bee gives you unlimited access to the play space Monday – Friday 9am-4pm, and Saturday – Sunday 9am-1pm. This includes all of our classes during those hours like music, story time, mommy & me yoga.
