NURTURE{BKLYN} NURTURES BABIES & TOTS!

Nurture{Bklyn} is a bright and cheerful oasis for families, located in the heart of Brooklyn in Windsor Terrace. Our space is a place where your child can explore, sing, play in the grass and meet other small New Yorkers.  Our indoor playroom allows for imaginative play and creativity and our spacious backyard invites freedom and discovery giving urban kids an opportunity to explore nature in a private, home-like setting. 

Created by a local mom and doula who understands your needs as a parent, Nurture{Bklyn} is a space where you can let go, have a cup of tea and connect with other parents while your child makes connections too! Imagine your home away from home where friendships are nurtured for both you and your child and you don't have to clean up after the playdate!  That's our goal and intention. We welcome all families and caregivers and can't wait to meet you and our small neighbors!  We offer a variety of programs that engage your child in play, movement, music, art and nature. 

Please read about some of our signature offerings below and please make sure to also check out our Upcoming Offerings for the full list of all we are currently offering.
