Grinning Minis

Yes! We are happy to offer childcare at our NW 23rd Location, Monday- Friday from 9:45-11am.

Grinning Minis is our sweet and wonderful childcare option for the growing family. Every weekday at our NW location we offer childcare during our 10am classes. The childcare room opens at 9:45am and Mom, Dad, or whoever is taking care of the kiddo that day, is on the mat from 10-11am.  While you get in a full yoga practice, your little one gets to play with our amazing Grinning Minis caregivers and other minis. 

More Details: 

Our childcare room is equipped with kid friendly furniture and lots of games and toys to keep your little one busy. All toys are infant friendly. 

Our caregivers are a mix of mamas, nannies, and baby-loving responsible women.

You might be asking, "What If? ..."  Here are a few FAQs to ease your mind:

What if --- my baby is gets hungry? Or has a diaper blow out? If either of these happen, we will come and quietly get you from class.  We are happy to help in anyway but will not feed or change your baby without supervision. 

What if --- my baby get really upset? We have a 1 adult to 3 baby max. This allows for caregivers to have plenty of space to focus on little ones who may be sad. We will do our best to make them happy again. However, if crying lasts over 15 minutes we will come and quietly get you from class. 

What if --- we are running late? You are welcome to join class up to 10 minutes after it starts. We are moms and we get it ... on time isn't always that easy. The teachers who lead morning classes understand if you need to come in late. Please just be sure to pre-register so we know you are coming!

What if --- I can't find parking? That time of the morning is actually easier than most. Try one block away toward 24th, or pay a small fee at a meter right on 23rd - the three $3 might be worth the time looking for a spot. 

What if --- I sign up and can't make it? If you can, please email tori@thegrinningyogi.com as soon as you know you aren't coming and also cancel online. We will return the class to your account the first three times, after three cancels you will be charged for additional late cancels. 

What if --- I didn't sign up, but want to drop in? We prefer for you to pre-register. However, you are welcome to try for a drop- in and see if there is space for your mini. If we have space we'd love for you to practice and for your mini to play.

Please Note: Minis are welcome after 6 month old, unless you've spoken with Tori or Jamie. Grinning Minis maxes out at 6 minis, so please register online if you know you are coming.
