The Olney Community Library and Arts Center has the returning Babygarten program starting January 8, 2021.
Babygarten is open to parents with babies ages 0-3. Parents must accompany their babies and stay with them for the entire program. Babygarten will meet every other Friday from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. starting Friday, January 8. Parents and babies who are interested in participating in Babygarten should stop by the library to register or call us at 940-564-5513.
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 baby item. Many projects and activities will emphasize the importance of reading to babies AND parents will learn how to do this most effectively. This is an opportunity to also share insight about infant development and parenting. The class concludes with a free play period.
The Babygarten dates are: Friday, January 8, Friday, January 22, Friday, February 5, Friday, February 19, Friday, March 5, Friday, March 26, Friday, April 9 and Friday, April 23.
