Babies' Day Out Program

Babies' Day Out offers a comfortable, fun and inviting atmosphere for caregivers and their babies up to 12 months of age. We have informal discussions on helpful topics relevant to caring for a baby in their first year. Topics include healthy growth and development, infant care and parenting. Also, we plan circle time, songs and stories to stimulate baby in a setting where parents can meet other families and socialize. So come on and join us!
