Registration for May-June 2021 Small Groups is now open! Groups will start the week of May 3rd, lasting eight weeks total, and ending the week of June 21st.
Small Groups are for children age 0 months to 4 years old, and are designed to allow you and your little one to socialize and learn in an intimate, safe setting.
HOW IT WORKS
Here’s how it works — you’ll join four other families with kiddos in your babe’s age group, one day each week, for 8 weeks total. Every week we’ll enjoy a different Bunny Hive class that’s specifically tailored to your age group, whether it’s music, sensory, art, or more, so you and your little one can always experience unique and exciting activities. You’ll see the same families each week, allowing you to develop authentic friendships with people at the same stage of parenting. What’s more, this ensures your inner circle remains small so any potential exposure to illness stays minimal. Joining a Small Group at The Bunny Hive is the perfect way to do something special for yourself and your little one, and give you both the opportunity to learn, grow, and safely socialize.
HEALTH & SAFETY
All families who are part of Small Groups will be asked to sign a “Commitment to Group Wellness” pledge, which promises to practice safety precautions in and out of The Bunny Hive and promises to disclose any COVID-19 symptoms and exposure to the entire group. By joining a small group, you are making a pledge to all of us that you are doing everything you can to keep your family — and our families — as safe as possible. See below for our FAQ section for more details on safety precautions.
HOW TO JOIN
The next round of Small Groups will launch the week of May 3rd, 2021 and will meet once a week for 8 weeks. The cost to join a small group is $120. VIP Unlimited Members can join a small group for $60. See below for our outline of age groups and the tentative schedule of activities for each group.
Important — please read all of the FAQs on this page prior to enrolling as they cover important information regarding cancellations, safety precautions, and more. Due to the popularity of this program, we do not offer refunds for any reason after registration. Masks are required for all adults during Small Groups. Please see below for more details.
The schedule below will be updated as groups sell out. If there is a waitlist for your preferred group, we recommend trying to find another group that will work for you as it is very unlikely that we will be able to move people off the waitlist once a group sells out. If your preferred time or age group sells out, you are welcome to join another age group if your child is within a few months of the other age group.

We are now offering a limited number of Private Small Groups. These groups are designed for groups of friends to sign up to be in a Small Group together. Private Small Groups will run the same length as regular small groups, eight weeks total from the week of May 3rd through the week of June 21st, 2021. Registration for Private Small Groups is now open.
• For three to eight families, 8 children total
• $700 total, no matter how many families are in your group
• Children can be any age, newborn to four years old
Once you purchase your private group, our staff will reach out to you to get your class preferences and you will be sent a final schedule of activities closer to your group’s start date. Your group can choose to have your classes inside with masks required for adults, or you can choose to have class outside, with masks optional for adults. You make the rules outside.
How to sign up — talk to your friends and select the private group time slot that works best for your group. See below for the available time slots. Appoint one person as the group lead. The group lead will be the person who purchases the group for everyone ($700) and this will be the point person that we communicate with to confirm your class preferences. You’ll work out collecting money from your friends privately (we recommend Venmo!)

• Private Small Group One - Saturdays at 12pm - Sold out
• Private Small Group Two - Fridays at 4pm - Sold out
1. My child is going to be in the next age group soon, can I join the older group instead?
We recommend joining the age group that your child will be in on May 1, 2021. However, it’s up to you to select the group that you think your little one will enjoy most! No one knows your child as well as you do, so pick the age group you think is the best fit.
2. I want to join the same Small Group as my BFF. How do I do this?
Yay! Small Groups are great to join with friends or extended family members! Please coordinate with each other to make sure you are joining the same group.
3. I joined the wrong group or I changed my mind about what group I want to be in, can I switch?
Unfortunately our small team does not have the bandwidth to coordinate this or switch people around if you join the wrong group so we prefer you stay in the group you originally selected. However, if you have a really tough situation, reach out to us and we will do our best to help out.
4. I have more than one child. Can I join more than one group or bring two children to the same group? Can more than one adult come if I’m bringing multiple children?
Yes! Additional children in the same family can join any small group for $95 ($25 off for additional children). You can bring both children to the same group, or bring each child to their own group. However, f you are going to bring two children to the same group, we ask that you bring your younger child to the older child’s group. For example, if you have a two month old and a two year old, please come to the two year old group with both children instead of bringing your toddler to the baby group. This is because the older child is likely to be bored in the younger group. We will do our best to alter the activities to suit the younger child, but keep in mind that the activities will primarily be designed for the designated age group. Important — to register more than one child in your family you will need to have an online account for each child. Go to My Account to create an account for each child. It’s okay if one account is under your name and you create a second, new account for one of your children under their name. The important thing is you have an account for each registration you’d like to purchase and that both accounts have the same last name. To get the $95 pricing on additional children, use code SIBLING when you checkout. Any registration that is purchased with this discount code that does not match another last name will be removed. As a safety precaution, we ask that just one adult attends Small Group with the children so that everyone can spread out during class. If you’d like another adult there to help, please register for two full ($100) spots so that your family can take two spots in the group and we can still practice social distancing.
5. Can I bring my newborn to my older child’s Small Group? My newborn is probably just going to sleep the whole time and/or not participate in the activities!
If you have a child younger than six months and you intend on that child not participating in the older child’s class, then yes, you can bring the younger child. This is intended for parents who plan for the younger child to sit in a car seat (or similar) nearby while the focus is on the older child’s participation in the class curriculum. In this case, you do not need to pay for the newborn. If you would like for the younger child to be included in the activities, then you must register for that child for a spot in the group (so your family has two spots in the group) and you will need to pay the $95 sibling fee for a total of $215 for both children.
6. Can I bring my older child to my younger child’s group?
If, for example, you have a two year old and a three month old, we recommend only bringing your younger child to the Small Group and leaving your older child at home since most toddlers will be distributive to the younger babies in the group. However, if you think your older child will quietly sit with you during the group and not disturb the younger children, you are welcome to try bringing the toddler if you do not have childcare. However, since there is no way to not include an older child in a class (i.e. they will likely not be sleeping next to you in a car seat) we require that you pay the $75 sibling fee to bring the older child to the group and register the older child as a participant so we have the proper materials ready for them to participate in the class.
The exemption to this is if you are part of two Small Groups, and you have already paid for the older child to be in another Small Group. In that case you do not need to double pay for the older child. Please keep in mind that if the teacher feels the older child is being distributive to the class, then you may be asked to leave the child at home next time for the benefit of the entire group. Please do not take this personally, as we all know how difficult can sometimes be with unpredictable toddlers. We just want the little babies, who the group is intended for, to get the most out of the experience. Lastly, if you want to bring your older child one time due to a family circumstance, and not for the entire 8-weeks, you can do so and pay the $25 drop in fee.
7. Can more than one adult attend Small Group with a child?
As a safety precaution, we ask that just one adult attends Small Group with the child. This will allow everyone to spread out during Small Group.
8. Can different grownups bring my child to Small Group each week?
If the additional grownups are people that your child is regularly in contact with anyway, they are welcome to attend in your place. This is because your child has already been exposed to these adults, and if the child is coming to class then the entire group is being exposed to those additional adults anyway. This is why it’s so important for all of us, and our inner circles of family and friends, to practice safety precautions in and out of the studio. By joining a Small Group, you are making a pledge to all of us that you are doing everything you can to keep your family — and our families — as safe as possible.
9. What if I register to be in a Small Group but I later decide that I am not comfortable attending do to the latest reports on COVID or for another reason?
It’s impossible to know what the future holds, and as parents, we understand that it’s difficult to commit too much right now. However, due to the overwhelming interest in Small Groups, once you register for a group we will only be offering account credit if you decide to withdrawal from the group for any reason between the time you register and up to one week prior to the start of Small Groups. Account credit can be used toward any purchase at The Bunny Hive including class drop-ins, memberships, class packs, retail items, and birthday party rentals. If you withdraw within one week of Small Groups starting you will not receive an account credit.
10. What if I miss a week of Small Group due to illness, travel plans, etc.?
Each family can miss one Small Group week for a credit to attend a makeup class. If you miss a class, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate this makeup class. Makeup classes must be scheduled by July 1, 2021. Please note that VIP Unlimited Members who purchased a Small Group for 50% off do not receive class credits since they already have unlimited access to drop-in classes.
11. What if someone in my group tests positive for COVID?
All small group participants will be notified immediately and alternate arrangements will be made for upcoming classes, if necessary. The positive group member will be asked to refrain from attending group for at least 10 days after a positive test. The Bunny Hive will work directly with family who tested positive to ensure make up classes are arranged and/or they are registered for a makeup future Small Group.
12. What safety precautions is The Bunny Hive taking related to COVID-19?
Please visit our COVID Policies page in the footer of our website for information.
13. Will masks be required in Small Groups?
Yes, face masks are required during all Small Group classes and gatherings for parents and teachers. Face shields do not count as a substitute for traditional masks. Masks are not required for children.
14. Can Unlimited VIP Members join a Small Group?
Yes, you can add a Small Group to your unlimited membership for $60 (50% off regular price). Unlimited members can use the code smallgroupmember50 to get their discount. Important: if you are not a current Unlimited VIP Member (this is the $120/mo unlimited membership) and you use this code to get a discount, you will be removed from the group and unable to rejoin as this is considered an honor code violation.
15. Can I use my class pack to attend a Small Group?
No, Small Groups are separate from class packs. You can join a Small Group for $100 and continue using your class pack to attend drop-in classes.
16. Is there a waitlist for the group I’m interested in?
Yes. Up to 5 families can be on a waitlist per group. Families will be moved off the waitlist in the order they were added if space opens. However, if there is a waitlist for your preferred group, we recommend trying to find another group that will work for you as it is very unlikely that we will be able to move people off the waitlist once a group sells out. If your preferred time or age group sells out, you are welcome to join another age group if your child is within a few months of the other age group.
17. Why did the price for Small Groups go up to $120, from $100?
Our Small Group program is very expensive to operate and we decided that we needed to raise the price to continue providing our families with the same high-quality experiences that have come to be expected at The Bunny Hive. However, even at $120, each class comes out to be only $15 each. Our classes are typically $25 each, so Small Group families save $10 per class.
