Welcome to Galoop!
Galoop offers informative and engaging Child Development and Spanish Immersion classes where your child has the opportunity to learn and socialize while adults connect and feel supported around important parenting topics. All classes are taught by Cecilia Matson - a Child Development Expert of 20 years. Classes are one hour long and include a circle time with songs and parachute play, art and sensory activities, fine and gross motor activities, and story time.
Cecilia brings her expertise on parenting and child development to every class and you'll have the opportunity to consult about topics such as eating, sleeping, behavior, discipline, potty training, sibling relationships, and more. If you have specific questions or concerns that require a one-on-one discussion, you can book a consult with Cecilia here:
