WELCOME TO CUDDLES & GIGGLES, LLC

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 with fun, seasonal themes for each age group.  You and your child will meet new friends within our community!  Children can 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 songs, colors, letters, numbers, shapes, days of the week, months of the year, and weather.  Bubbles, a yoga pose and a movement song 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, listen to stories, roll in our ball pit, hop on our pirate ship, jump on our trampoline, grocery shop, cook in the pretend kitchen, play with a variety of toys, and enjoy our indoor treehouse with a slide.  We meet weekly where friendships can be made for yourself and your little one as we all learn together.

Every Session Features A Soft Play Class!

All classes will have one soft play class built into each session.  Soft play encourages motor development and jumping/rolling without fear of injury.  Having a space with good sensory lighting will provide the sensory development they need to move and learn.  It is great for improving coordination, motor skills and imagination.  The equipment is 196 square feet.

Soft play is designed for energetic babies and toddlers. They will be encouraged to climb, explore and learn as they play on the soft play.  It is perfect for crawlers and new walkers to climb and play.

Soft play includes:

Private yoga lessons (1 hour lesson is $40)

I am certified as a yoga instructor and have training for special needs individuals as well. I have helped students with ADHD, autism, and sensory processing disorder. Yoga practice is all-inclusive and I do incorporate poses and breathing exercises into my mommy & me classes. Yoga 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. If you are interested in booking a private session, please e-mail me at cuddlesandgiggles@outlook.com with your name, phone number, days and times you are available, and the age of your child. I will return any e-mails within 24 hours. I am currently offering private lessons on certain days. A lesson plan is structured based on your child's information sheet. Private lessons include: 1. Inner Peace 2. Warm-up 3. Poses 4. Game or activity 5. Breathing exercises 6. Rest

Why is Circle Time So Important?

Children may not realize that a circle is an ancient, universal, and simple symbol of unity and wholeness, and that circle time, as an activity for groups of children, has been around for about a century. Since there is no beginning or end, every individual in a circle is equal and belongs to the whole group. Expanding on this idea, the most successful circle times include acceptance, openness, and non-judgmental expression of ideas. 

What Children Gain from Circle Time  

Since the opportunities for reading, discussion, and play in circle time are endless, so too is the opportunity for children to learn and grow. 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. For example, when children:  

All About Me

My name is Teresa Hogan and I am the owner of Cuddles & Giggles. I opened Cuddles & Giggles in 2020 and I have met the most wonderful moms and children. 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 as well. 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, a variety of different sports (retired roller derby gal), photography, volunteering, going to concerts, spending time with my family and friends, reading and animal rescue. I love books, candles, wine tastings, interior design, Christmas, Halloween, pumpkins, facials, organizing and log cabins. I have recently become a yoga instructor for special needs children. I am thrilled to be able to be offer this opportunity in our community and I look forward to meeting you and your children!
