FAMILY PLACE- 1, 2, 3…Grow with Me (Ages 1-3)- Autumn


NOTE: The November 6th session of Family Place will be held jointly with one of our children’s yoga programs the library has previously offered, Yogawees for ages 2-5 (See separate description below).

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  You may now register directly from this page by clicking the “More Info.” link below; or, if you prefer, you may still go directly to the library website at

The Derby Public Library introduces a multi-week session of Family Place -1, 2, 3… Grow With Me on Mondays at 10:00 AM.  This innovative program is a time for families to share together with their 1-3 year-old children.  Siblings who are age 5 and under are also welcome to attend, but do NOT need to register (except for the yoga session).  Each week will feature puzzles, books, blocks, a craft, dramatic play and more followed by a story and rhymes.  Parents/caregivers will also be introduced to some of the many resources available to them to assist in the raising of their toddlers and have an opportunity to meet new friends in an educational and creative environment.

A resource professional from the community will be available on two of the Mondays during these sessions to discuss parenting questions and concerns.  Topics will include child development, nutrition, immunization and more.  Do not miss the opportunity to consult with experts on a no-fee basis while your child enjoys a wonderful play experience.  Families are encouraged to attend each week to obtain the full benefits of this multi-week session.

The Family Place is a national initiative of Americans for Libraries Council and Middle Country Library.  The Family Place of Connecticut is made possible through the generous support of the Katharine Matthies Foundation.
