New Springtime Activities & Toys

Celebrate Spring at Peapods!With the promise of warmer weather just around the corner, we're excited to grab an umbrella, put on our rubber boots and do some puddle stomping! After a long winter, it feels great just to get out of the house.

Is there any better way to jump into Spring than with yoga and music? We'll be kicking off our Baby Yoga, Toddler Yoga, and Music Together classes starting next week. We're super excited about these! We think you'll love our talented teachers and our remodelled Community Room. And we know from experience that an enriching outing almost always makes for a great day!

Also, mark your calendar for our first ever Spring Festival on April 12! Expect prizes, kids crafts, and a visit with baby chicks from Egg|Plant Urban Farm Supply. Stay tuned for more details! (BTW--we're looking for a face painter willing to work for store credit for this event. Please let us know if you know someone.)
