Teddy Bear Club boasts over 2,000 sq feet of space, which includes a kitchenette area (including complimentary coffee, tea, and water!) and bathrooms (including child size toilets!). We offer Open Play hours, a variety of enrichment classes, workshops, and events that provide a place where kids and their grownups can socialize, explore, relax, and have fun. Children are learning things they don't even realize because they are playing! 


Our primary goal for our playspace is to instill confidence and self-esteem in our children while building a solid foundation for their social/emotional development and lifelong learning. We highly value deepening the relationships and interactions between children and their grownups and strive to be a resource for all things child related.

Research shows that everyday moments - showing affection, comforting, and playing with children - helps build strong healthy brains. During the early months, parents and caregivers form trusting bonds with their babies to help them feel safe and secure in the world. This is the most sensitive period for brain development. The experiences a child has during this time will shape the architecture of his/her brain and build the connections that allow him/her to develop lifelong skills like problem-solving, communication, self-control, and relationship building, that will allow her to survive and thrive within her family, community, and culture. 

In this 45 min class infants and their grownups engage and explore the world from new perspectives, using their five senses, emerging language skills, and social-emotional cues to gain a greater understanding of the world around them. Activities focus on interactions with your infant that help support his/her social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.
