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.
