Baby Time green 07-2015

Mondays– 9:30 to 10:15 a.m.

Baby Time is a group experience for
parents or caregivers and their babies
up to about 18 months.
The program focuses on learning
rhymes, songs, stories and finger plays
to share together. Basic signing for infants is also introduced to help pre-verbal children communicate their needs.
These activities stimulate a child’s
developing brain and are an important
first step toward enhanced literacy
and cognitive abilities.
Baby Time programs are also a unique
opportunity for parents and caregivers
to develop a valuable ‘tool kit’ of
activities to use with their children.

Toddler Time green 07-2015

Mondays– 10:45 to 11:30 a.m.

Toddler Time continues the steps begun
in Baby Time. It is geared toward toddlers
in the 18 to 36 month age group.
Children at this age usually begin to take
a more active role in the activities and will
often request favourite rhymes and songs
they have learned. They also develop
social skills and deepen connections with
the other children.
At the same time, the adults can enjoy
meeting and spending time with other
parents of young children.
