Art Classes for Young Children Ages 0 to 5 Years

Why is experimenting with art so important during the early years of a child's life? Art stimulates both the left and right sides of a child's brain and enhances their capacity of memory, attention and concentration in addition to being able to better express their feelings, ideas and emotions.

The sensory art program at The Kids Club SI allows babies, toddlers and young children the ability to explore visual and textural-based art mediums. Perhaps best of all, our program lets parents keep their sanity intact because all the mess stays here at our facility.

It is great to have a true top-notch parent/child educational center for baby and toddler classes on Staten Island with the expert teachers we know and trust from the old Gymboree Play and Music. My wife, daughter, and I love attending play, music and art classes together and see how appropriately focused the classes are around the child’s age and milestone (unlike other programs we’ve checked out on the island). Having previously worked for the Board of Education, I recognize how methodically and thoughtfully the set-up of The Kids Club program is around childhood development and the fundamental learning through play concept. The benefits of finally having a facility like this on Staten Island are endless and I encourage any parent considering enrolling their child in any type of activity-based class to check out The Kids Club! They are the best!

My princess baby Amirah and I love The Kids Club so much. The teachers are so loving and caring. I started taking my baby for classes here when she was only 3 months old. She is now 12 months! The Kids Club helped me leave my house and go do something fun with my baby when I was nervous to do so (I'm a first time mom and felt overwhelmed with taking her out because I dreaded her having a meltdown in public!). The classes are engaging and I'm so happy knowing I am doing what I believe is best to help her grow socially and mentally. Thank you for creating a fun and safe space for me and my baby girl!

I cannot say enough positive things about The Kids Club of SI! Our daughter started baby music and play classes when she was an infant (when this location was formerly Gymboree Play and Music of SI). We fell in love with all the classes and the incredible teachers who are truly experts in childhood development and love each child as their own....As a first time mom wanting only the best for my daughter, I was very critical in selecting the parent-child enrichment classes and mommy and me classes on Staten Island our family would eventually sign up for. I can confidently say that The Kids Club of SI, without a doubt, is the premier childhood education center on Staten Island!

We fell in love with all the classes and the incredible teachers who are truly experts in childhood development and love each child as their own. Since becoming The Kids Club of SI, we've also now enjoyed the brand new indoor play equipment in addition to the wonderful classes with the same amazing staff in the pristine, clean environment we've become accustomed to the past two years that we've been members.

I can confidently say that The Kids Club of SI, without a doubt, is the premiere childhood education center on Staten Island and am SO happy to have my daughter continuing toddler classes there!

In my experience, there is not another facility on Staten Island that has nearly as robust of an educational program specifically focused on age-appropriate milestone development and learning through play. To add, my daughter has consistently hit milestones early and the teachers have continuously recognized this and fostered this, placing her in classes in-line with her individual pace of development (and as a parent, I thoroughly trust their expert judgement since they have years and years of experience with this!)

Simply put: if you want the best for your kid, look no further than The Kids Club of SI!

My first daughter grew up at this place and now after COVID they reopened I started taking my second daughter and it’s better than ever. The teachers are great! Fun, engaging, and know what the kids like. Space is very clean and they do a good job sanitizing between classes. We feel comfortable coming here and are so happy to be back! Highly recommend!

- Alena B.

I’ve been a long time customer of the Staten Island kids club. We’ve always enjoyed going to their classes. This year we decided to have my sons second birthday there. I cannot say enough good things about the day. Everyone from kids to adults enjoyed themselves. I got so many compliments after. The staff was attentive and wonderful. The facility is clean. They truly care for the families they care for. Wonderful experience!

- Samantha G.

We are so happy we chose to come to The Kids Club for educational classes for our child. Our son is so happy when we pull into the parking lot for classes. We have made so many wonderful friends. This establishment is super clean and my child is learning so much. I just booked my son's birthday party, we can't wait!

Thank you so much Kids Club, we love you!

- Shannon K.

My daughter loves The Kids Club SI and is learning so much about sharing and following directions while having fun. We love being greeted at the door by the teacher, it truly makes us feel right at home.

This is an amazing place for parents and kids to make friends, learn, and play.

We recommend The Kids Club SI 100%!

- Traci L.

Staten Island Kids Club is such a great place for little ones to get developmental experiences in all areas. Ms Lucie and Ms Fran are both amazing. They have a perfect balance of nurture and structure with the children. We have done the program with my son (Mommy and me, summer camp, school) and are now doing it with my daughter. She is always excited to go and engage in the array of activities and routines they do with the kids. It offers a nice gradual release into school by letting babies get used to the place and teachers with mom and dad and then dip their toes into a “school” setting in the classroom with the teachers.

It is always so clean and fresh. The play area is rearranged every couple of weeks to offer new but familiar obstacle courses.

I’ve recommended this place to many of my friends and will continue to do so.

Looking forward to seeing my little girl flourish in their school program this September.

- Stephanie S.

I don’t have enough wonderful things to say about The Kids Club. From mommy and me to their nursery school program, they’re absolutely fabulous there. Everyday my son comes home to talk about what new things he’s learned and I love that. Miss Fran & Miss Lucy and the rest of the ladies are so great with him and the rest of the kids too. They’re warm and kind and so welcoming. As a mom, I don’t have to worry about my son while he’s there and I couldn’t ask for more.

- Ashley I.

Great first time experience so we joined and love it!

Registration online for a free class was easy and the website is user friendly, resourceful and full of information. Depends on the package you choose-you can go there unlimited times a weeks, 2 times or 1 time. Plus they have a free Open Gym for members - which is amazing. The teachers are top notch and nurturing!!!

We picked the unlimited membership because we can do developmental play classes, music class and open play.

My daughter loves THE KIDS CLUB and we are both making friends, learning and having a blast!!!

I give this place 5 out of 5 stars!!!

- Arnold M.

Being a stay at home mom currently to a 15 month old little boy with no siblings, I was definitely on the hunt for great activities and opportunities for social interaction. When the Kids Club offered a free class, I took advantage of the trail class and both him and I were hooked! The classes are developmentally age appropriate. The teachers are all really friendly, knowledgeable and always try to maximize the experience for each child. The teachers always greet us by name when we come to class and we feel at home there. I recommend The Kids Club to anyone with small kids looking for classes to strengthen all aspects of their growth.
