Babygarten is a program that brings caregivers and babies together for an hour of stimulating experiences intended to nurture the bond between caregiver and child, and to increase the caregiver's awareness of their child's development. 

Babygarten's primary focus is the healthy development of infants aged 0-18 months old with an emphasis on language enrichment and pre-literacy skills. 

The program includes nursery rhymes and songs, book sharing, parenting information, a developmental craft, and a free-play period when babies play and caregivers can talk. 

Space is limited to 12 babies every week so please sign up for the classes that you are able to attend. We will have a wait list. 

It will run for six weeks at 10:30 in the Sturtz Room. The other dates are: Oct. 19 and 26, Nov. 2, 9 and 16.
