Our BABIES class is one hour and our MINIS and TWOS + THREES class is one and a half hours. Each class meets once a week. Parents and caregivers stay to play.
After you’ve filled out the Class Registration Form, Stacey, our owner and teacher, will give you a call to get your little one scheduled.
Classes range in size from two kiddos to approximately ten kiddos. In the TWOs + THREES class, we limit the class size to eight kiddos. Space is limited and spots are filled on a first-come-first-served basis.

At Our Friends Afar, you don’t need to purchase a membership to come play! Feel free to join our classes via our Drop-In option. This is perfect for those of you hoping to come check out the class. If you’re looking for more flexibility with your busy schedule, consider purchasing our Class Pack option. With our Class Packs, we offer purchasers the opportunity to make up two classes. We know things come up, especially sicknesses, and we do our best to accommodate. There are no reimbursements.
Payments are made via Venmo or Zelle. Classes must be paid for prior to attending.
Here’s how Class Pack purchases work. After purchasing your pack, you pick the weeks you’d like to attend. They can be all in a row or sporadic throughout the coming months. You can make changes to the options you chose, as long as you give us 72-hours notice. Prior notice helps us ensure that each class has enough kiddos so your little ones can have the best opportunity to socialize while playing. Class Pack purchasers must use their classes within a six-month period.
We are happy to add more classes if we get more kiddos interested. Please let us know what date and time you are thinking of. At the moment, we do not have Saturday classes available. Please let us know if this is something that interests you. We can add you to a list to notify you of any Saturday classes.

Classes are held in our home in our beautiful rainbow playroom. The specific location is only shared with parents who have already paid for classes. For pre-planning purposes, we are located in Highland Park near Preston Road and Mockingbird Lane.
We so appreciate when you spread the word about our classes. If you refer someone to Our Friends Afar and they purchase a 10 Class Pack, or if you refer someone and they host a party or playdate, you will receive one free class! Additionally, if you organize a continuing class (four plus classes) for you and your friends, you will also receive one free class.
No sick kids or adults are allowed in class. We strive to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our little ones. Because we have newborns attending classes, we need to be extra careful. Plus, if our teacher (ME!) gets sick, we can’t host classes. Thank you for your thoughtfulness in not bringing your sick little ones to class. As mentioned above, if you purchase a Class Pack, you have two makeup classes available to you up to six months after the purchase date of your Class Pack.
We use Force of Nature products and Water Wipes to keep our room clean. Shoes are removed in the classroom. Masks and hand sanitizer can be used at your discretion.
That depends on the type of sensory base you are buying. Rice, kinetic sand, salt, and pasta should last forever. Sometimes, the color vibrancy fades over time. These should be kept out of direct sunlight and kept dry
