Parents often ask what’s the best way to assess whether a children’s program is right for their family. Here's a good two-prong test:
1. Your tot gets tearful when it's time to go home and asks if the instructor can come live with you.
2. You secretly feel the same way as your little one.
Kids at Work passes both these tests with flying colors. This early childhood program has grown through word-of-mouth to become one of Downtown's best kept secrets. Rather than offering mere "stimulation" or "entertainment," all programs go deeper to cultivate independent thought, self-directed play, and authentic social interaction.
This deal gets you a four drop-in music, dance, or art classes at tremendous savings. And the best part? You have the flexibility to choose any classes you'd like. See their fall schedule here!
Founded in 2007 by early childhood educator and mom, Julie Averill, Kids at Work is one of Chelsea's best-kept secrets—a community of children, parents and caregivers making real discoveries together. Classes are focused on educational best practices, including ideas taken from the Bank Street and Montessori systems, such as process-oriented and confidence-building, choice-driven activities.
