That is wonderful and you maybe surprised at how much fun you'll have as well. A good instructor will teach you how to safely introduce your pup to other pups and dogs. Hopefully you can also learn how to read other dog's behaviour to a degree, so you can avoid the ones that may hurt your pup or scare it.
The puppy classes that I just finished with my little girl was a riot, the goal of the class was controlled socializing, basic training (sit/down/etc, calming exercises, focus exercises) but we also had a fake door to work on waiting until released to go through the door, tippy boards, placement mats, a very shortened agility tunnel, a pop up tent (ask them to get in, ask them to wait until asked to come out) and so much more.
