childminding

In order to increase access to yoga for parents of younger children, we will begin providing child minding services during a few of the lunch hour yoga classes offered at the Buffalo Foundry studio. We strive to provide the highest quality of care possible in an informal setting so that you feel confident and comfortable while you practice. We're also committed to keeping this service affordable. We are counting on your cooperation with this following policies to ensure the success of this endeavor. Please note, childminding is only offered June - August.

AGES

Children are welcome between the ages of 3 months to 5 years. Because of the informal nature of this program, we may not be able to care for children with special needs. If you think your child’s care requires skills that are beyond the capabilities of our experienced but untrained minders, please pursue other arrangements.

pricing

The price is $13 for the first child and $5 for each additional child in the same family. Children may be dropped off up to 15 minutes prior to the start of a class and picked up 10 minutes after the end of the class. Please be timely.
