April 3 - May 8
Babygarten is much more than a play
group! Infants and their caregivers will share nursery
rhymes, songs, and books but also get a chance to make
fun projects that demonstrate the babies’
developmental milestones - usually a homemade toy or a
baby book item.
Many projects and activities will
emphasize the importance of reading to babies AND
parents will learn how to do this most effectively. Each
instructor will also share insight about infant
development and parenting. The class concludes with a
free play period.
Program meets once a week for 6 weeks.
Program is open to infants (birth to
18 months) and their caregivers and is limited to 12
participants per class.
To register, please
call 793-7116 or stop by the children’s desk.
April 7 - May 19
1st Step is a fun, interactive program for children
1˝ to 2˝ years old and their caregivers. Throughout
the program, toddlers will be exposed to a wide variety
of music & movement activities, sign language,
letter/word identification, numbers, colors, shapes, and
other pre-literacy activities.
Instructors will also share appropriate books,
songs, and activities with caregivers for use at home.
Many toddlers are
not quite ready for the structure of a more formal story
time setting. 1st
Step gives them the opportunity to explore their
surroundings in an environment that encourages them to
move and discover and very rarely sit still.
At the same time 1st Step helps toddlers begin to
learn how to follow directions, to listen, to respond
appropriately in a group, and to become more aware of
themselves and others.
Each 1st Step class
consists of a 30 minute activity session followed by 30
minutes of free-play time.
Caregivers should wear loose comfortable clothing
and are strongly encouraged to be silly, sit on the
floor, sing loudly and have fun!
1st Step meets once
a week for 6 weeks. Please
note, there is NO class on Monday, October 28.
Class size is
limited so please register by calling 793-7116.
April 1, 15, 22 & 29
