The Urban Chalkboard

The Urban Chalkboard Learning Studios & Play Cafe is more than a "kid friendly" coffee shop. With a host of activities and classes designed by moms who just happen to be PhD child development experts, it is the perfect place for parents and their children to connect, get the most out of their relationships, and grow together.
Single visit $10
5-visit punch pass $40

The founders of The Urban Chalkboard are Tonya Bergeson-Dana and Jessica Beer both of whom hold PhDs in cognitive and developmental science and are faculty members at Indiana University School of Medicine. They have conducted federally funded child development research at Riley Hospital for Children for several years and have successfully published scientific papers and book chapters on language, cognition, music, infant-directed speech, and executive function for over 10 years. They are also both mothers of young children. Tonya and Jessica are committed to spreading a culture of connection among people and their community through each of their offerings.
