Do I need to live in DC to join Petite DC?
- No, however, most parents do. Many people join the program to ultimately find closely-accessible people to connect with when the program is over.
- A primary caregiver must accompany your child to each class. Ideally, it would be the same mom/dad for the six weeks. Unlike most classes and programs in DC, this is the only one exclusive to primary caregivers. For you, this means that you are actually connecting with other parents and building friendships with them as opposed to their nannies.
- Each week is held at a different metro-accessible location across the city, depending on the activity. For example, if we are sampling a music class, it is held at the music class venue in Dupont Circle.
- Your child should be 12 months before the beginning of the session. The point of this is so that you meet other parents with kids close in age, and so that there is a similarity in terms of mobility and class engagement. We want the groups to be developmentally appropriate. A lot of the activities in this group are not great for kids who are already running around.
- Yes! Two parents can attend.
- Not at this time. If you work, what some working parents do is take an hour or so off just these five or six times (they are typically early morning or lunch time).
