Play & Learn 

Parents and children ages 16 months to 3 years are invited to interact, learn, and explore in a child-centered environment. Join us for a three-week session at Omni's Blakeney Campus. Child-sized furniture, sensorial objects, and open spaces encourage toddlers to move and to be independent. Parents will gain awareness of the child’s natural learning cycle as children play in a beautiful environment designed just for them. Pre-registration is required. Classes are free. 

Contact the Director of Admissions for more information and additional class dates or register here to receive more information when future dates are scheduled.
