Just Wee Too
Just Wee Two, created by Helen Beck and Ruth Broitman in 1982, is a fun-filled program for young children ages 8 months to 3 1/2 years and their mommies (daddies, nannies, grandparents…). Through activities such as music, arts and crafts, playtime, stories and snack, children are encouraged to explore, discover, interact and enjoy this special time in their lives. This program provides a unique opportunity for grownups to share this magical experience. We also offer partial separation and two hour separation classes which help children transition to future school activities. There are three 11 week sessions – a fall, winter, and spring – and a six week summer session.
