The Lego Club gives children the opportunity to create structures and stories! Each month, we’ll have a different construction challenge or collaborative group-build activity.

We’re also bringing out the Duplos for our youngest Lego aficionados to enjoy!

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.In order for all children to participate and have a successful experience, please let us know if your child has any special needs that we can accommodate. Call Edith at 734-475-8732, ext. 213.
