Music, gymnastics, soccer, art, yoga at ‘Play and Grow Studios’ inside Broadmoor Arts and Wellness Center

Written by  IntheNOLA.com
We’ve told you before that our editor is always looking for things for the #IntheNOLAbaby (aka Gabriel aka Godzilla) to get into. From pumpkin patches in Hammond to bounce houses in Esplanade Mall, this boy is always getting into something.
 
Most recently, Gabriel was a student at Thibodeaux School of Music (TSM), locally owned and operated by husband-wife-toddler trio, Madeline, Paul, and Sebastien Thibodeaux, where he was taking weekly Kindermusik classes, “a music and movement program for 0-6 year olds that focuses on whole-child development.”

In addition to the music school, the Thibodeaux family now operates the new Play & Grow Studios (PGS) (3900 General Taylor St.), where everything from yoga to soccer is offered for our littlest New Orleanians.
 
Located in the new Broadmoor Arts and Wellness Center, “Play & Grow Studios is a place where young families can come to learn, play, socialize, and have fun!” said Madeline Thibodeaux. “We offer classes in everything from childbirth and postpartum support to music, art, languages, and sports. Our programs are open to families from pregnancy through age six.”
 
She continued, “I opened Play & Grow Studios in the Broadmoor Arts and Wellness Center because I wanted a space that was large enough for all these different programs and could be used in a variety of ways. Here, we have a carpeted room and a tile room, so we can do just about anything between these two rooms! It has been great working with the Broadmoor Improvement Association and the other tenants of the building as well. I had been doing my own thing for so long that I forgot how much fun it is to collaborate with other people and organizations!”

At Play & Grow Studios, the focus is on early childhood development. “Music is a naturally big part of early childhood education, but there are also many other aspects as well and we offer a wide variety for families to choose from,” Madeline explained.
 
And Madeline isn’t playing about the wide variety to choose from! Take your pick: Madeline’s Kindermusik, WeeHands, DancingDrum, Alliance francaise de La Nouvelle-Orleans, JD Sports (Gabriel will be trying out the soccer and gymnastics soon!), NOLA Nesting, Toddler Art NOLA (which Gabriel LOVES!), Kidding Around Yoga, Vamonos NOLA (learning Spanish is on Gabriel's to-do list as well!), and Zizu Bijou Infant Massage. “All of our programs offer a free preview class. So if you think you might be interested in a class, but want to try before you buy, call us! We love meeting new people.”

Having a toddler certainly keeps Madeline in the know of what young children enjoy. “My son, Sebastien, is two and a half years old now, and he loves music, reading books, playing pretend, and going to gymnastics class here at PGS. He is such an inspiration to my work. Going through the parenting journey with him has given me the exact perspective I need in order to truly understand what NOLA families want for their kids!” 
 
With Halloween on the horizon, Play & Grow Studios will be hosting a Halloween Party on Thursday, October 29 from 5:00pm-8:00pm with food, music, games, activities, a costume contest, and photo booth. “It’ll be family friendly, not-so-scary fun geared toward younger kids. It’s also a teal pumpkin event, so families with food allergies don't need to worry!” In addition, every Tuesday, Play & Grow Studios hosts a Kindermusik Pop-Up Playdate at a different neighborhood park.

Whether it's French or Spanish, or yoga or gymnastics, the #IntheNOLAbaby hopes to see you in class one day!
