Help a Mom: Evening, weekend mommy and me classes

Posted March 19, 2013

I received an email from a working mom who is looking for a program to do with her six-month-old.

Here's what she wrote:

I'm interested in attending a Mommy & Me class (music, Gymboree, etc) with my six-month-old, but the only classes I've found are first thing in the morning. Are there any afternoon, early evening or weekend classes that are more suitable for a working mom's schedule?

This family lives in Raleigh. I sent her links for SproutSong Music and Joyful Song Family Music, which both offer weekend classes in Raleigh, according to their websites. The Little Gym in north Raleigh has programs for babies starting at 10 months on Saturdays, according to its site. I told her she might find something through Raleigh parks and recreation too.

But I'm sure there are more programs out there. Please share your recommendations in Raleigh and beyond!

    I just recently signed up for swim lessons in Raleigh. I believe there are Wednesday evening and Saturday classes available, for $15 per lesson (you pay for one month's worth of lessons at a time).

    Stroller Strides has mom-and-baby workouts on Saturdays, currently at 9:30am at Apex Community Park (aka 'Lake Pine'). It's a total body workout plus songs & fun for the kids, and dads are welcome too on Saturdays!

    Kindermusik in Cary is offering Saturday morning classes this summer (starting in June). Aquatots also offers evening and Saturday morning swim classes starting in April (starting at 6 months old) -

    I know the YMCA downtown does mommy and me swim lessons on Saturday mornings for 6 months and older. I think there is a Kindermusik class in Clayton saturday morning that is for that age as well.
