5 best enrichment classes for babies and toddlers in Klang Valley

Here's a list of edutainment and enrichment classes for younger babies to play, learn and socialise. Check out these programmes available in the area near you

Is your baby bored at home? Thinking of places where younger babies can play, learn and socialise?

While many parents have varying opinions about babies attending classes at such a tender age, I really do think that exposing them to some form of early education can be very beneficial to them. They say children are like sponges, but even babies absorb a lot from their surroundings. It really helps them to develop early motor skill and also social skills.

So apart from bringing your baby out for a stroll in the park, check out some of these edutainment and enrichment activities around the Klang Valley.
