Babytime 1 @ Chelsea District Library at McKune Room
Feb 28 @ 9:30 am – 10:15 am

Babytime has gotten so popular/crowded, we’re offering two of them this Tuesday! Because the library opens at 10am, please note that there will be no library services before the 9:30am Babytime; check out your books after! Also, plan to attend one, but not both sessions offered today.

Play an important and powerful role in shaping the early learning experiences of your child! Babytime is the perfect place to socialize and learn important skills with your baby or toddler. We’ll be singing songs, doing bouncy rhymes, learning some “baby signing” and reading along to fun board books in the first half of this program. In the second half, the toys come out! While the babies play (and learn to share!), caregivers have a chance to socialize and exchange information.
