Tuesdays at 10:00 am, May 14 through June 11 – REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Calling all parents and caretakers of children ages 0-5! Join us at our Family Place Library Workshops, starting this May. We’ll be holding 5 workshops where you and your little one can enjoy engaging with toy stations (sensory, motor, dramatic play, and more) and interacting with other kids and adults. Plus, meet different childcare specialists each week! This is not a lecture or talk, but a space where you can play with your little one and see how they interact with others their age. Do you have questions about your child’s development, or about parenting? Chat one-on-one with professionals in a laid-back environment where you can focus on your and your child’s specific needs, and learn more about skills and resources. Light refreshments will be provided. Visit our Events page for more information and to register. Please plan to attend all five workshops.
