Before we know it the older kids will be back in school. I cannot believe it's back to school in just a few weeks. Which means that many new moms are asking me what the best classes for babies ages4 months and up are. I have curated a LYSST of some of my favorite classes for the wee ones.

 

Lets begin with the famousLittle Maestros Class, did I tell you that there is a long waiting list so make sure to sign up very soon for this amazing, #FabULyss interactive musical class.From four months old thewee onescan gurgle, clap and shakealong to Bach, The Beatles, jazz, rock — you name the tunes. The Little Maestros will have your baby rocking and rolling. The class truly rocks and keeps you and your child movin and groovin the entire 45 minute class. The class is also a wonderful way to meet new mommy friends. The class is mommy and me music classes from rock to Bach. There is a live adult band at every class, complete with five vocalists, a drummer, guitarist, piano player and sometimes a saxophonist.With classes located all throughout NYC you can have your choice of location.

Another favorite of mine is Free To Be Under Threeis a class designed specifically for the growth and encouragement of children ages 6 months to 32 months of age. Language development and the respect for the individual spirit of a child are the commitment to this unique program. Free to Be Under Three, a language-building mommy-and-me class on the Upper East Side. Full of colors, repitition and hands on learning and of course exploring and playing.www.freetobeunderthree.com

Your baby wants to be on Broadway? Look no furtherApplause/Broadway Babies,is the class thatbrings the magic of Broadway and Rock 'n' Roll to thebabies. Located on the Upper East Side, babies go gaga for the songs of Broadway and the best show tunes. It's never to early to expose your baby to music. Each class has a different show theme.

My Gymoffers Little Bundles and Tiny Tykes for the lil ones. Baby exercises, songs, dances, infant-safe rides, unique swings, and many other Parent & Me adventures await the infant-parent team. This fun movement class also includes a brief parent discussion element. Each week parents participate in a dialogue about their children's development and leave with informative handoutswww.mygym.com

Whether your little one is a budding artist, musician, scholar and athlete, NYC has you covered from A to Z. I always say the moms hold the keys to NYC's most #FabULyss playgrounds.
