For our money, fall is the best season of the year. Not only are the kids back in school and/or on a normal routine again (hallelujah!) but sweater weather is on its way in, the endless job of sunscreen application is on its way out, and there’s always a flurry of fun, festive fall happenings all over the city.
Speaking of a flurry of fun happenings: Y’all should know that NEST — that Philly mecca of kids’ classes and play time — has a major fall lined up, and it all starts THIS WEEKEND. On Saturday, 9/30 and Sunday, 10/1, you can hit up their FREE open house from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Kids ages 6 weeks to 6 years are welcome for complimentary classes from 9 a.m. until noon, free play in the play space, snacks, crafts, raffles and giveaways, meet-and-greets with instructors, and more.
But that’s not all. NEST is also currently offering a 30-day FREE membership trial, so families can go and check the place out without committing to anything. (And YES, you can sign up for the free trial at the open house!) The trial membership allows kids and parents unlimited visits to the play space, as well as discounted parking, access to the free Wi-Fi and all the Starbucks coffee you can drink while your kid climbs and bounces and runs free in the play area. (Note to prospective members: New NEST members’ first development class is also free.)
Meantime, both members and non-members alike should also know that Session 2 classes (10/20 to 12/23) are open for enrollment, and the new lineup of classes looks awesome. (World Music! Baby Jamboree! Indoor Sports!)
See? Told you it was a big fall at NEST. For more info about any of these goings-on or to just read up on other NEST offerings (parties, special events, drop-in classes and etcetera), check out the NEST site or the follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
