Playgroups & Cooking Classes at The Village Well


If it's true that it takes a village to raise a child, then you've found the right place! The Village Well is the destination for parents and children alike to thrive, learn and have fun.

At The Village Well, Playgroups provide an engaging, stimulating and inspiring environment. Sing along with live musicians during Circle Time, enjoy some beverages and home-made, healthy snacks and listen, laugh and participate in an interactive storytime. Kids can also create a masterpiece on “Arts and Crafts Wednesdays."

Don't worry, we didn't forget about you, Mom. The Nourish and Flourish Cooking Class is a joint class for parents and kids (3-6 years old) to cook and bake together. Children will work with a professional wellness chef to develop fine motor skills, learn about new foods, nutrition, and kitchen safety, as well as what it means to work and share with others towards a common goal. It's a 12-week class, so you'll have a plenty of quality time with your little chef – and lots of new friends!
