THINGS TO DO IN ATLANTA WITH TODDLERS: PROGRAMS & CLASSES

  • Children’s Programs at Smith-Gilbert Gardens – At Smith-Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw, you’ll find children’s programming offered throughout the year.

We’ve toured the children’s garden, spied on the koi, read magical stories, and examined ladybugs. So much to do here!

  • Library story times – Libraries all around the city vary in the quality of their story times.  If you’re not happy with your closest library (raises hand) then venture out a little farther. You don’t have to be a card holder to enjoy these great events.

  • The Music Class –Introduce babies and kids to music – rhythm and dance. It’s fun for baby and mom, too
  • Buddy and Me Gymnastics at Champion Kids – You can take classes, but my kids prefer the Open Play time, with a bounce house, swinging rope, trampoline, and much more. There is even a place for the littlest ones.
  • Aqua-Tots -Swim lessons – with a parent – as young as four months.
  • Preschool Adventures at Autrey Mill Nature Center – The perfect way to introduce your preschooler to natural science and history! Each adventure is different and has a theme chosen to spark a preschooler’s imagination. Included is a hands-on activity or craft.
