Babygarten is an educational curriculum for caregivers and their babies from 3-24 months, which focuses on classes to teach the parents how and why to read to babies. The classes feature songs, rhymes and projects that highlight overall development of infants with special emphasis on language acquisition and pre-literacy skills.

Babygarten is much more than a play group! Infants and their caregivers will share nursery rhymes, songs, and books, but also get a chance to make fun projects that demonstrate your babies' developmental milestones - usually a homemade toy or a baby book item. Many projects and activities will emphasize the importance of reading to babies, AND parents will learn how to do this most effectively. The class concludes with a free play period.
