Best Baby Classes in the East Bay

We always support getting out of the house with baby! Around three- or four-months old, your newborn will start to wake up to the world and enjoy some stimulation outside of the house. It’s a great time for the baby (and the caregiver) to stretch their legs, meet other folks, and explore baby classes.

Whether you want open space for your baby to crawl with other babies or more guided music time or even language exploration, we love these baby classes in Oakland and throughout the East Bay. These classes are especially great for babies who might not be stable enough to play with bigger kiddos.
