Finding a good club for the whole family can be hard in a big city like Las Vegas, and you want the best for your kids. It is important for social development, though, and can be just what a family needs to spice up a boring week. So, Crème de la Crème of Las Vegas has done the research for you and found seven wonderful local clubs you and your family can join.
Mornings With Mommy
Wake up, stretch, and start your day right with your darling little one. This relaxed but education-driven group will brighten your morning, as you can mingle with other adults while your children burn some energy and learn incredible new things.
There are age-appropriate activities for kids from infants to preschoolers. The best part is that they do all the planning and prepping, and you just sign in. The sessions have arts and crafts, sensory tables, and even fantastic STEM activities. The group will encourage your little ones to enhance their fine motor skills and even provide snacks! All you have to do is sign up and pay $5, which covers the whole family.
Art for the Young

Painting, building, drawing, crafting: Whatever you choose, art is a wonderful form of expression that can help kids share their emotions and ideas. That’s why the Art for the Young group offers classes for parents and their kids to share. The group is proud to create a safe space that utilizes Montessori-style techniques for experiments and discovery that you can share with your child as you watch them bloom.
The members meet regularly at Artsy Nannies in Las Vegas for a number of group activities, such as “Canvas for Kiddo” and “Artists Playground.” They even hold holiday-themed events like the Halloween costume party from October of this past year. Check out their past and upcoming events to learn more and discover the next time you and your kid can drop in to paint, build, and craft to your heart’s content.
It’s fun to stay at the YMCA — and amazing to know that the organization has been around since the mid-1800s, especially with how far it has come from its London roots. The Y has been providing a great place for children and adults alike to learn skills and stay healthy for decades. The Las Vegas chapter has been functioning since the 1940s and now provides everything from youth camps to elderly classes.
Because the Y believes that everyone should have access to a healthy lifestyle, they make membership accessible to people at any income level through sliding scales and meal programs. Whether you join the YMCA of Southern Nevada for the free “kid watch program” while you work out or their safe and active summer camp programs, there is always something there that can benefit your family. Don’t forget to check out their group workouts and see what they have in store for you. This club truly values your health.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and it’s true. MOMS Club Las Vegas is a support group for stay-at-home moms and their children. The club helps to organize outings, play dates, and community service projects. The group aims to help provide growing experiences for children while also recognizing the hard work of moms.
Along with providing socialization for the kids, the MOMS club also hosts a monthly Mom’s Night Out (Without the Kids). Having “you time” is just as important and helps you unwind from the everyday stress of parenting. So check out this club to help your kids make friends while meeting some new people as well.

They boast fun activities for the children as well as plenty of fun for parents once the kids have hit the hay after a long day of hiking, exploring, or just sunbathing.
