Chíc City Mom is a private group of unique mommy & me learning playgroups for mom & baby. You can begin our group with your newborn & continue until age 18 months. In our groups you will not only gain access to amazing resources, support & tips- but you will also gain friends for life!
What sets our classes apart from other mommy & me groups?
We have licensed experts who guest speak each week. Our semesters are 6 weeks long, with 90-minute classes. There are 15 mothers (and their newborns) in each class.
The beginning of each class is a time for group discussion where each mother has a chance to talk about their weekly issues, followed by 40 minutes of topic discussion from the weekly guest speaker. We end each class with a question & answer period with our expert, and songs for the babies.
Pricing: 6 weeks = $350
