Babies' Day Out Program

Babies' Day Out offers a comfortable, fun and inviting atmosphere for parents and their babies up to 12 months of age. At Babies' Day Out parents have the opportunity to meet guest speakers, Public Health staff and early childhood educators. We have informal discussions on helpful topics such as infant care, parenting and growth and development that are relevant in the first year with baby. Also, we plan circle time, songs and stories to stimulate baby and parents can meet other families and socialize. So come on and join us!
