Oaks ‘n Acorns has a variety of classes for all ages (from babies to 10 year olds) . Morris tried the “Big Top Hip Hop” class for kids aged 2.5-4. It was the first class he had attended without my husband or I in the room with him. I love that at this age (2.5 to 4 years) Oaks ‘n Acorns offers the opportunity for an independent class. Morris was a little reluctant, but since his cousin was with him he agreed to go in.
Parents sit outside the room and can either watch through a window or sit and relax at the tables/cafe. My sister and I did a bit of both. Part way through the class Morris saw me through the window and the tears started flowing. One of the sweet instructors gave him a big hug and then invited me to come into the room. After a few cuddles, Morris agreed to finish the class. Afterwards he said how much fun he had. He is now signed him up for the 12 week spring session and has since been to two classes, with no tears!
After the class, if you stick around until 12:15, the gym area is available for free play. If I let him, we would still be playing in that room now!
