Private Session: Jennie Monness
She'll be all yours for as brief as 30 minutes or as long as you'd like. For now, all meetings will take place via zoom. You can discuss anything including how to manage tantrums, setting up a pod curriculum, designing and organizing your playroom, or managing life as a mom/wife/entrepreneur.
After check out, someone from our team will be in contact with you to schedule the time.
If you're here, you likely already know about Jennie but just in case...Jennie Monness began her career in early childhood 12 years ago after receiving her Master's from Teachers college, Columbia University. About two years ago, Jennie decided to take a decades worth of knowledge in early childhood education, and share her learnings with new parents to educate and empower them through her blog Mo' Mommies. She teaches classes, speaks at events, and uses social media, to provide timely information about her own parenting and toy recommendations that new parents deeply need and desire. Her aim has been for moms to connect, support and empower one another. She has co-founded Union Square Play to bring these ideas to life through developmental, sensory, music and creative classes in addition to a thoughtful open play space. Her methods center around open-ended play materials and objects, so that babies can be engaged rather than entertained, creating their own "curriculum" and learning in the most natural, innate way. Due to COVID-19, she has launched USP Online to focus energy where parents need it most and now leads various virtual mom groups weekly. Additionally, she has created the content and curriculum in what was recently launched as the Union Square Play Packs, meant to support parents of children 1-3 years old with at home sensory learning kits. Parents can choose to utilize them in smaller learning “pods” as the boxes are meant to take the place of in person social experiences that young children are lacking right now but also to complement those experiences once early learning centers like Union Square Play do reopen.
