Infants through 6th graders and their families are invited to learn and play together while getting to know other families.

Babygarten is a faith-based program developed by a children’s librarian and early childhood specialist that focuses on reading, rhyming, and activities to help lay the groundwork for the important skills that babies develop early in their lives. Babygarten is more than a playgroup or storytime and provides pre-literacy skills for children in a faith-focused environment.  Register for the full program (six Thursdays mornings or afternoons) for $72/includes materials.  Email for details.
