From our website, www.crownheightsvillage.org:
It Takes A Village! is a membership based home away from home for engaged parents and their children below 4 years in Brooklyn, and provides a clubhouse for local families to have fun, get inspired, learn, and grow.
Benefits are vast. Foremost, all members get a (literal) key to the space, and personal access to the space 7 days a week! Members can reserve space indoor or outdoor for free birthday parties. We have an array of classes and workshops.
And of course, a place where you will always find the company of loving parents and other similar-aged babies for yours to befriend and play with. Make this
your second living room.
The Village is community-building place where we hope all the 'babies' in this vicinity of Brooklyn will get to know each other, forging bonds that extend beyond and into the social structures they will find when they start school. The
space will have a daily roster of activities that encompasses classes such as music art and yoga. Over time we will incorporate pre- and post-natal health
classes, baby CPR, lactation and sleep workshops, and so on. All of these should be as close to free or by donation as possible. We will have a large library of kids books, and a huge array of toys. The large backyard will seek to be themost desirable playground around.
Above all, The Village clubhouse should be a place that a parent can go to to be
around other parents, a place that is both theirs, and a place they know they
will find empathy with other local parents going through the same challenging
day to day stuff. At the same time when you go to The Village you'll know there
will be a play date awaiting your baby.
Hope to see you today!
