Little Play Society

While Little Play Society was unfortunately forced to close its indoor brick-and-mortar space, the beloved kids gym recently debuted socially distanced, outdoor classes. Little Play's Wee Jammin’ 2 (for ages 2-5) launched on Sept. 2 at Little Play Park (aka Los Angeles High Memorial Park). The classes are held every Wed. and Sat. at 9:45am, right after the original Wee Jammin’ class (for kids under 2), which starts at 9a.m. There will be sanitized instruments and props for kids to jam with.

Cost: $20 per class

Covid Protocols: Pre-registration and masks for adults are required. Masks or face shields for kids 2 and over are optional but recommended.
