For children 10 months to 2 years old.

Baby Time is a developmentally appropriate, rich language, rhyming and musical environment where all children can develop a disposition toward becoming life-long readers while developing an appreciation for all language and music!

Parents, caregivers, and children will interact with and respond to the best in children's literature through musical play. Through engaged, adult participation, our goal is to immerse children in a rich environment filled with the joy of story, music and movement.
