I had taken this class twice with my first baby and was happy to be able to introduce my daughter to it this fall. The thing that I like most about this class is its great value. At just $28 for the session of four classes, if weather gets too bad, or if you had a bad night and just can’t face going outside, then you don’t feel bad about missing a class. The songs are fun and the instructor has been there for years and really enjoys being around the babies. Don’t expect a great musical education for your baby that you might get from some of the private music programs, but do expect a fun outing for you and baby in a nice setting with other nice moms and babies at a great price. The number one problem with this class was the inconvenient time for my napping baby. The 1:30 start won’t matter as much for a younger baby who has many naps per day, but my daughter was six months at the time and sleeping for twenty minutes in the stroller on our way home meant she wouldn’t nap for the rest of the day. She was a very cranky girl by bedtime.

The CECC offers tons of programs for babies, toddlers and young children. For older babies and toddlers, you can try out their “drop-in” Monday-Thursday afternoon and Friday mornings (check the website for exact times). Drop-in is free for members and only $2 for non-members. There are lots of toys to keep kids happy, and is a great, inexpensive way to get out of the house. I’ve even met a whole group of moms and babies there for a playdate when our group became too big to meet at each other’s houses. If you live in the area, then the CECC is a must
