Brella Pasadena Invites Young Families to Its Holidayfest Curriculum Event on Dec. 2nd

Published on Oct 27, 2023

This special Open House event will allow families to explore Brella’s play-based curriculum and gain insights into the unique educational experience it offers for children aged 3 months to 6 years.

The event serves as an opportunity for parents and caregivers to tour Brella’s light-filled classrooms, and to get a firsthand look at it’s enriching educational approach.

“Brella is a better child care center,” Melanie Wolff, co-CEO and Founder of Brella, said. “We offer the highest-quality care and education for children 3 months to 6 years old. With beautiful, conveniently-located spaces, fast enrollment, and flexible booking through our mobile app, we’ve made child care a better experience for the whole family.”

Whether it’s your first time considering child care or you’re seeking an innovative approach to early education, the event is tailored to cater to a diverse range of needs.

The Open House will take place between 2 and 4 p.m.

Wolff said Brella stands out for its holistic approach to child development, emphasizing a well-rounded curriculum. These offerings are influenced by respected educational philosophies, including Montessori, RIE (Resources for Infant Educators), and Reggio Emilia.

“We have learned that many in the community think Brella is just drop-in care. But in reality, many families use Brella regularly including full-time,” Wolff said. “Every child who comes to Brella is exposed to a beautiful learning experience complete with STEM, art, music, and early literacy. We help children get Kindergarten ready.”

Wolff also spoke about their enthusiasm for becoming a part of the Pasadena community and mentioned their growing presence.

“It is great to have both Tia and Erewhon, our neighbors, open and operating,” she said. “We continue to welcome new families every week into our center and recently opened our fourth classroom.”

Brella said the open house and showcase event will not only offer a glimpse into the center’s unique educational programs but also provide insights into their approach to enrichment.

“We offer music class to our students three times a week,” Wolff added. “Any child who is booked during those times participates in our amazing music program. It’s a great moment to book your child.”

Before the Holidayfest open house, Brella plans to hold a Halloween parade and pot-luck on Oct. 27 as part of their community involvement effort. Currently, the center is hosting a food drive where Pasadena-area families are encouraged to drop off non-perishable food at their center until Nov. 16.
