  • Romparoo has always been one of my favorite places – the girls that run the classes are always full of energy and smiles and the space is just the right size for toddlers. They also have a great way to minimize passing yucky germs around – if it goes in a mouth, it goes in the bucket for washing later.

    They also read a story at the end of class so the little ones settle down after all the jumping, singing and bubbles. Great list!
