As a special preview of the LA Baby Show, coming up on the weekend of November 5-6, we have interviewed or profiled many of the Show’s vendors and participants. You can read all about them on this Show blog, but of course the real fun is experiencing the Baby Show in person.
Tickets to the Baby Show are $30 per family, and $20 per individual, and can be purchased here.
We are excited to introduce WonderTree Kids as a programming and parenting partner for the LA Baby Show. They are a highly regarded educational and play center in Los Angeles.
When we see infants looking up at a mobile, or a toddler rolling a truck over a couch cushion, we see children playing. But while they play, they are beginning the first steps to learning about the world. Learning doesn’t begin in school – it begins with every toy and object little children interact with in their day-to-day lives. WonderTree Kids takes that idea to heart within their programming.
We spoke with WonderTree Kids President Nazmina Kheraj to learn more.
For someone unfamiliar with WonderTree Kids, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
At Wondertree Kids, we believe that the most important learning years are from birth to six and that school readiness begins at birth. These early years bring with them an intense fascination for learning; young children are excited about learning new things and discovering the wonders of the world around them, and parents are looking for activities and ideas that can help leverage these early years and set a solid foundation for their children. Wondertree Kids’ enrichment programs and approach to school readiness helps you take advantage of your child’s natural curiosity and need for exploration to propel their development of important educational and life skills through the best pathway there is for children – play!
What is the background of WonderTree Kids? When did it start, and how has it evolved since then?
Wondertree Kids has been a mainstay in the South Bay since 2004. Previously operated under the name of Wondernation, we have served over 2,000 satisfied clients and plan to serve even more in our new state of the art facility.
What are the most popular and/or newest services or classes from WonderTree Kids?
In addition to our signature Music & Sign and Music & Movement classes, Wondertree Kids offers great Messy Art classes and recently we launched a STEAM (Messy Art & Science class) & Music FUNdamentals for older kids.
What sets WonderTree Kids apart from other family and children centers?
Wondertree Kids offers various classes to stimulate learning and development through Purposeful Play. Wondertree Kids’ School Readiness model takes the science of early childhood knowledge and develops it into practical classes, activities & programs for parents and children that are stimulating, engaging, play-based and so much fun! Designed by early childhood experts, our age-appropriate activities & classes help develop the character, communication and cognitive and control skills of children through Purposeful Play!
