Just great flow, pacing, energy, balance, seeing other kids, seeing Jenna, the songs, the visuals, etc. Technology and resources and planning all are working smoothly to give a great experience.

Carin M.

5 / 5

Leader was warm and knowledgeable. Love that the weekly Zoom class is just one aspect of the broader curriculum. Also appreciated that she gave guidance that it was okay to play in whatever way the child chooses, no need to make them stay on topic or keep their body still - that's super stressful as a parent!
