I will play close attention to your replies, Jax, as I have also have an upcoming 1 year old party in September!  lol.  All I've thought of is Carroll Park as the rental rates are very reasonable.

HI everyone! I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for where to have my 1 year old's birthday party locally. It won't be til October but figured I'd start asking around. Thanks!

Thank you ladies! I might try Transendance since we are members at FFC, but I had looked at Intuit too. I guess I will have to see what times the classes are in the fall schedule!

We never did find the right fit for our daughter for dance.   It's awful to say, BUT my six year old was with the park district for a bit and was completely uninspired.  That teacher now owns a dance spot in Oak Park but no longer works for the village.

We have had our children (girl and boy) at Intuit in the past and both really enjoyed the classes.  Diane is great but we couldn't work with her scheduled classes this summer.  Instead, we tried the Park District for my daughter (4yo) and she did not like her class at all.  I know others who do like them but my daughter didn't like the dirty floor in the facility and she had a rough start because her original class was full of much younger children.  We switched to Transcendance at FFC - and she loves the class.  It's ballet, tap and jazz and Cait, the owner, is excellent.  There is still room available in the Thursday, 4pm class and they may still be taking sign-ups.  Good luck!

I'm interested in any feedback/recommendations for dance studios as well.  We had my daughter enrolled in Flex & Pointe in Forest Park this year and we just learned they are closing the studio so we will need to find a new one :(

Anyone have comments/recommendations about the local dance studios? I am looking for the right place for my almost 3 yo to start ballet/dance. Thanks!!

Don't forget about Newcomers & Neighbors of OPRF! We have an awesome playgroup for ages 0-5 (or thereabouts), lots of family activities as well as adult night outs and philanthropic endeavors. Check us out at!

Hey All! I've put together a short presentation on how to find and interview and prepare for a sitter or nanny. Would love to practice as well as share with Moms... anyone interested in hearing it?

Hello! Our family is moving from Chicago but we would like to help our nanny find a new family to work with.  She has been with us for almost 3 years and cared for my son and a daughter of close friends.  She lives in Stone Park very close to Oak Park and would love to work with a family in the area!  Our children have thrived under her care and love her dearly.  If you are interested or know of a family who may need her care, please email her or myself at I would be happy to answer any questions and give her an excellent recommendation.  Thank you! Helen
