Baby Artsplay!

The Wolf Trap Institute offers children ages 3 months to 3 years, along with their parents and caregivers, the opportunity to take part in a Baby Artsplay!™ residency program in their community.

Taught by veteran Wolf Trap teaching artists, the weekly or biweekly classes enhance learning and development through music, movement and drama.

What classes offer children

Baby Artsplay!™ classes stimulate vocalization and language; improve focus and self-regulation; build social and emotional skills; and tap into children’s innate sense of curiosity and desire to connect to the world around them.

What classes offer parents and caregivers

Baby Artsplay!™ classes demonstrate the important connection between performing arts and infant/toddler development. Parents/caregivers learn strategies for incorporating singing, dancing, drama, and other multi-sensory activities into their child’s daily routine to increase engagement and improve learning.

Administrators and teachers can arrange Baby Artsplay!™ classes in any school. Call 703.255.1933. 

Wolf Trap also offers free early learning classes at Fairfax County public libraries. Registration opens two weeks prior to the start of each session and space is limited, so register today! For a full list of all available Baby Artsplay!™ classes in Fairfax County public libraries, visit here
