Halloween Picnic Recap
Thank you to the families that braved the rain to have fun with babies in costume at the Greenwich House Music School. And special thanks to parent volunteers Sarah Faranda and Lemor Moses for helping to coordinate.

Registration now open for Winter Parent-Only Music Together Classes
This fall we launched our first ever private Music Together Class at St Luke's, and it was a hit. The class filled to capacity and parents and babies made friends while receiving all the benefits of early childhood musical exposure through the Music Together curriculum.

We are expanding our offering this winter to City Treehouse in Chelsea, which has the added benefit of having access to the indoor playground (for an additional fee.)

The classes start in January and we expect both to be popular, so sign-up now. Please note that these classes are exclusive to active West Village Parents members and may require you to renew your membership in order to join.

Info for City Treehouse Tues 4:30-5:15 class here
