Our group classes encourage intellectual and physical growth through both fun and play in a stimulating, safe environment.
Open Play Group
This class will give you and your child the space you both need to play, learn and socialize. Open play will assist your child in building important developmental skills. Let your child roam freely in a bright, safe, engaging environment with a variety of toys, mats, art supplies, books and games. There is something for every child to indulge in at Busy Bodies. Join us to make new friends for you and your child. Open play welcomes children from newborn to 4 years old.
Join us every Friday morning for Anza’s Spanish Music Sing-a-long. Anza’s love of music and children is ever so present during this 45 minute group class. You and your child can sit back and enjoy Anza’s Spanish songs, guitar, flute, animal puppets and bubbles! This class will help to introduce your child to spanish in a fun, social and engaging way. All ages welcome.
Sing-Along – Presented by Yo Re Mi
This class features familiar sing-along songs as well as new ones. Children develop coordination through rhythm exercises, discover the joy of playing instruments, and learn basic yoga poses. Early exposure to music is essential to developing minds, and enriches the dynamic between child and parent. Children share and express in a group environment. Dan Costello is an early childhood and elementary music educator who designs and implements curriculum at The Co-op School and Tribeca Community School. Children should attend with a parent or caregiver. All ages Welcome.
Moosiki Music Class
Moosiki Kids offers a program that nourishes development through music, including communication through baby sign language, guided play through repetition of original music each week, music appreciation of popular children’s music and child appropriate rock music, and exposure to new sounds and rhythms by introducing a new “instrument of the week” each week in class, including the guitar, banjo, clarinet, ukulele and trombone, among others.
Moosiki Kids classes are 45 minute interactive “grownup-and-me” style music classes for adults and children ages 4 months to 4 years. Moosiki Kids blends traditional musical learning with a more relaxed, rock-and-roll style, having fun while actually learning musical terms and playing musical instruments of our own. Of course we need to mix it up by using a parachute, puppets, and other various props, all the while incorporating music in every exercise. Our number one goal is to have fun, and by doing so, learn musically at the same time!

Infant Developmental Movement
During the first year of your baby’s life, movement affects the mental, emotional and physical well-being of your child and the adult your child will become. Their arrival, comfort, bonding, and curiosity are supported by the process of these develop”mental” movement patterns. Through observation, touch and play we set a safe container to support your baby to thrive, in their comfort, at their own pace.
Classes are designed to educate parents and caretakers to recognize and facilitate an easy, layered sequence of finding Midline, Rolling, Creeping, Crawling, Sitting, Kneeling and Standing – building your baby’s brain and body. By gracefully opening inner pathways, we open their world of choices. Classes support the natural three dimensional ways of being and moving in the world. Join to observe, ask questions and share your curiosities about your baby’s developmental movement patterns.
