About Us

We believe that a sense of community is so important for both child and caregiver. Busy Bodies is a place to play, nurture and grow together as a family and a community.

Our Space

Located in the heart of Clinton Hill, Busy Bodies is a neighborhood space for families to come together for open play, classes, events, lectures and parties.

The space is soaked in natural light and features a jungle gym with 500 square feet of padded play space. An additional 500 square feet includes tables full of art supplies, toys and music to enrich your child’s day. A private backyard is open seasonally for your family’s enjoyment.

Our Story

Busy Bodies was founded by Andrea Dillon and her husband, Ben, after celebrating the birth of their daughter in 2014. Maxine brought tremendous joy to their lives. There was so much they wanted to do for her but struggled to live up to their own expectations.

How could they find the camaraderie and friendship of others in a similar situation? Where could they go to escape their tiny apartment and enrich their child’s day?

They found themselves trekking into Manhattan and other areas of Brooklyn to participate in ‘mommy and me’ classes, only to find them overbooked and/or overpriced. These experiences often left them feeling defeated and exhausted.  Andrea became determined to open a space in her community.  She has created a place to play, nurture and grow together.


Our teachers bring their wealth of experience to enrich our curriculum and enhance your child’s overall health and wellness.
