If you would like more than one child to participate in a class with you, we invite you to sign up for a Semi-Private slot. This would allow you to bring all of your kiddos and invite another special family as well.

We invite you to read the descriptions below. Once you’ve chosen the class that’s right for your family. Please fill out the online registration form.  Our Registrar will follow up with an email or phone call to complete the process.
