Babygarten 
Ages 0-1
˝


Spring Sessions

Thursdays
April 3 - May 8

Mornings:  
10:15-11:15 AM

Evenings:
6:30-7:30 PM

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.

 

1st Step
Ages 1˝-3


Spring
Session
Mondays, 
April 7 - May 19
10:15-11:15 AM

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.
