The pandemic has made life difficult for many, including Bay & Bee -- your choice for Jacksonville’s best kids attraction -- which has been forced to make adjustments.

Bay & Bee is a Montessori and Waldorf-inspired play space for newborn children to age 4. It combines the need for friendships and learning in a play environment.

A statement on its website reads: “On March 12, 2020, we realized how serious the pandemic was and that our social product was no longer a sustainable option for the greater good. We’ve finally worked out a way to accommodate and combine low-capacity play and at-home play — and we hope you love it as much as we do!”

Under normal circumstances, play options for children include drop-in visits, 6-week small group sessions and unlimited memberships. Those were put on hold, but it also offers at-home activity boxes that are customized with crafts and reusable activities.

Drop-in play and small group sessions were expected to return in October.

In addition to its commitment to education, Bay & Bee is committed to staying clean. It uses Ecovasive cleaning products to disinfect daily and encourages everyone to use hand sanitizer and wash their hands.
