Are you looking for activities to do with your baby?  Ever imagine what it would be like to experience a story while taking a stroll through the park? Now you can!

Orlando REP has designed a new Baby and Me: Story Stroll class that allows guardians and babies to experience the outdoors together! This new program is an extension of Orlando REP’s traditional Baby and Me classes that have been a hit among many parents throughout Central Florida.

Teaching Artist performs for babies in strollers.

This new concept grew out of a desire to create a safe learning space where guardians could move around freely with their pre-walking aged children that are either held in a carrier or pushed in a stroller. Both the guardian and child serve as participants together and are led by a teaching artist that takes them on a mission as they explore Loch Haven Park. Each week is a new original story told through movement, props, puppets, and song. 

Baby is engaged in storytelling.

Guardians are guided and encouraged throughout the class to interact with their child, making it a one-of-a-kind bonding opportunity. Amy Fortin, a participant, shares…

“I loved seeing my daughter light up during the story stroll! This was such a fun way to spend time together and see her get so much out of the story and creative play along the way.” 

This class also offers a great opportunity for those wanting to safely interact, socialize, and meet new friends. Mike Landon shares…

“While I’ve enjoyed so much time at home with my son over the past few months, he was really missing interacting with other children and the outdoors! Story Stroll gave him fresh air, distanced interaction with other babies, and an engaging story.” 

Parents walk through park during Baby and Me.

Every week offers a different theme, mission, and learning goal, so parents can sign up for just one or all sessions!

Don’t miss out on this opportunity every Tuesday, October 2nd through November 17th from 11:00am – 11:30am.

Walk-ups are welcome to join!
