Maitland’s premier provider of mommy & me and young child enrichment classes, Shayna’s Village is a kid-sized village where children (ages 6 weeks to Pre-K) and their parents learn creativity through a variety of activities. Some classes are for both parent and child, while others are just for children. Inside Shayna’s Village, you’ll discover a Loft Library, Children’s Theater, Science and Discovery Area, Teaching Kitchen, Artpark, and Playscape Garden.
At Shayna’s Village, your child will have the chance to practice using manners and social skills. We believe in empowering children and helping them gain confidence to handle new situations. We believe that creative activities or activities that “support the arts” are the key to helping wire children’s brains for future learning and success. Shayna’s Village encourages children to take creative risks in a nurturing environment.
Types of Classes
Classes like First Impressionists, Baby Rock, and Nursery Rhyme Time are designed to give parents and caregivers a chance to spend meaningful time with their child while bonding and learning together.
Mind & Manners
These classes are designed to give children a chance to practice using manners and social skills while eating lunch in the “café” followed by activities that enhance their minds. Examples of these classes include Artistic Creations, What’s Cooking? and Music Mania.
Classes such as Alphabet Adventure, Lights, Camera, Action!, Bon Appetit! and In the Garden empower children by engaging them in activities that promote cooperation, original thought, creativity and life skills.
You’re Not Alone
Parenting can be tough – but you’re not alone. Shayna’s Village’s “You’re Not Alone” series of programs is here to help.
Learn effective parenting techniques—from each other! New parents, experienced parents, grandparents, educators…all are welcome to share their ideas at these scheduled meetings.
All You’re Not Alone programs are free for JCC and Shayna’s Village members.
Free Fun in the Village
Free Family Fridays
Fridays are a special time at Shayna’s Village, as we offer a number of free parent-child experiences to JCC and Shayna’s Village members. The morning includes Stories & Snuggles with guest storytellers, Lunch Dates with your little ones, and then a Music Concert to cap off the morning. Come to one of these classes, or spend the whole morning with us – it’s up to you!
If your child is around one or two years old, make sure to check out our weekly Kiddie Olympics, where we teach gross motor development. Kiddie Olympics is totally free, and does not require JCC or Shayna’s Village membership.
