Welcome to Cuddles & Giggles, LLC! Mommy & Me for Playtime, Early Preschool Education, Socialization, and Arts & Crafts for Parents, Toddlers, and Babies.

Best of Fauquier

Thank you for voting C&G Best of Fauquier County!

Welcome! Come play and learn with us!

COME PLAY WITH US!

I am a licensed, Mommy (or Daddy) & Me group specially designed for children ages 1 to 4 years old.  I offer classes based on seasonal themes.  You and your child will meet new friends within our community and participate at their own comfort level. 

The large play area is designed for parent and child to choose different activities for the last 45 minutes of the class.  The first 15 minutes of the class is a structured circle time that includes early education readiness that involves the parachute, songs, colors, letters, numbers, shapes, days of the week, months of the year, body parts, animals, the seasons, and weather. Bubbles, a movement song or game, and a yoga pose will end each class.  Both parent and child will experience the joy of learning through play.

The kids will use the felt board, move with our disco lights and craft using our theme each week. The play area encourages fitness, motor skills, creativity, coordination, sharing, physical development, patience and socialization.  You and your child will dance, sing, roll in our ball pit, jump on our trampoline, grocery shop, cook in the pretend kitchen, play with a variety of toys, enjoy soft play, and play in the indoor treehouse with a slide.  We meet weekly where friendships can be made for yourself and your little one as we all learn together.

What Children Gain from Circle Time  

How to behave appropriately in a group is a learned skill, which prepares young children for more formal education, for other group activities, and for many experiences in adult life. Everything from social skills to language to empathy can be gained with practice in circle time.

Stretching ends our classes!

I am certified as a yoga instructor and have training for special needs individuals as well. Stretching is all-inclusive and I incorporate poses through the movement song or individual poses at the end of class. Stretching increases flexibility, boosts immune system, builds awareness for transformation, encourages self-care as well as sensory processing, gives you inner strength, supports connective tissue and bone health, and builds self-esteem.

All About Me

My name is Teresa Hogan, and I am the owner of Cuddles & Giggles. I opened Cuddles & Giggles in 2020. I have four children of my own, and as they have grown, I’ve gathered what types of things they enjoyed and thrived upon as we carefully chose the activities they participated in their preschool years. I designed my program to have all of the elements that I believe are a good foundation for early preschool education. They are learning fundamental preschool subjects through song, socialization, fine and gross motor skills, and instruction through play. I grew up in Northern Virginia where I was born and raised. During college, I developed a career as a Paralegal which kept me busy for 12 years until I decided to become a stay at home mom. I have recently transitioned to homeschooling our children in 2021. I moved to Fauquier County in 2019 with my husband, four children, our cat, our dog and our fish. I am active and enjoy running, yoga, fostering animals, concerts, spending time with my family and friends, reading and animal rescue. I love books, candles, interior design, Christmas, facials, organizing and log cabins. I am thrilled to be able to be offer this opportunity in our community and I look forward to meeting you and your children!
