Babytime in the Garden

Best for infants and prewalkers, Babytime is storytime for littles - and their grownups! This session is full of songs, rhymes, and lap games - and maybe a short book - to fire up those babies' brains. Babytime meets every Wednesday at 10:30am with Miss Hannah in the Queset Garden and runs for about 20 minutes. Siblings are welcome and are encouraged to bring their own "baby" doll or stuffed animal. Please bring a blanket &/or chairs, along with anything else you may need to keep you and your little one comfortable (water, sunblock, sunhats). No registration is required and all families are welcome!

In the event of rain or excessively hot temps, we'll be meeting in the Children's Room. Keep your eye on the signboard by the road and follow us on Facebook for any weather-related changes.
