Founded by a Child Development Specialist, Hatch + Bloom Mommy & Me classes utilize PLAY to help children conquer developmental milestones while having fun. Toddlers are developing at full speed and going through a significant amount of change that comes with high emotions.  Evelyn Mendal teaches the importance of parental connection and limit-setting to raise independent, emotionally intelligent children.  Classes will include story time, music, movement and art to promote parent-child bonding all while having fun.

Class themes include:

  1. Conquering separation from loved ones and practicing our hellos and goodbyes
  2. Managing our big feelings
  3. Waiting is HARD! Promoting frustration tolerance and impulse control
  4. I am ME! Exploring self-concept and the body

Ages: for children 12 to 30 months.
