Special Instructions: Each child is asked to bring the following to class: a small doll or teddy bear and two pictures of themselves – one current and one as a newborn. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Class will start promptly at the designated time, so please allow yourself a few extra minutes to arrive.
