As the holidays hit, families look ahead to schedule for the New Year, already planning play dates and purposeful programming for their Boston Babies. Take a look at next year’s enrichment classes that the Sports Club LA/Boston is running through its own For Kids Only (FKO), a “Club within the Club.”
‘Tis the season to be jolly…give back this holiday season by dropping off a donation for Toys for Tots.
For Kids Only at the Sports Club/LA is accepting donations through December 18th. Each year, the Toys for Tots program delivers a message of hope to children in need through a new toy at Christmas.
Join For Kids Only as they collect new, unwrapped, non-violent toys that will be distributed to children in the Boston area. Toys can be dropped off on the fourth floor of the SCLA in the lobby, next to the front desk.
Visit Toys for Tots for more information about the program.

Busy Bees is the perfect learning environment for your busy babies! From the first step they take on their own, they are ready to run, climb, and move mountains. It’s like they’re buzzing around everywhere! In each two hour class, children will learn through group play while engaging with their teachers and friends. Activities will include building/blocks, colors, numbers, letters, music, movement, puzzles, art, and most importantly, fun! A simple routine will add just the right amount of structure to develop communication and coordination with their bodies.
Children approximately 24-30 months
Traveling Twos is just the program for your wiggle worms and tumbling tots! This program will engage your children in group play and cooperative activities to help them develop their social skills and manners. In circle time they will discuss designated program themes, sing and play music, and read books. The children will go to the basketball court daily for exercise and movement, as well as rotate through different activity stations. The everyday routine will incorporate ABCs, 123s, colors, shapes, sounds, sharing, and cleaning up. Registration is monthly; 1 to 5 day per week options available.
