BROOKSIDE—Mama & Me, which offers a variety of interactive classes and programs for toddlers and their parents (not just their mothers), hopes to open in The Brewery next month. The business is owned and operated by JP resident Shannon Nelson.

According to Nelson, Mama & Me will offer classes that encourage toddlers to explore their creativity begin building social skills in a “fun, safe and nurturing” environment. Classes will focus on movement and art.

Nelson said she has been looking for space for the program, formerly located in Newton, since last fall. “I noticed so many of the customers were from JP and Roslindale,” she said.

Nelson said she thinks Mama & Me will go well with the Tony Williams Dance Center, Music Together and other enterprises already at The Brewery. She said she has not yet signed a lease with the non-profit property owner Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corporation.

Mama & Me will share the 1,250-square-foot space with massage therapist Jeffrey Pritchard, Nelson said.
