FAMILY PLACE- 1, 2, 3…Grow with Me (Ages 1-3)- January-February, April & May-June



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 here .  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.

NOTE: April 24th’s session is a special session of Family Place in which we will celebrate The Week of the Young Child.  The Library, in collaboration with TEAM, Inc.‘s Family Resource Center, will welcome guest reader Jenna Hourani, a dietician with ShopRite Supermarkets.  Come listen to a story, learn about healthy snacks (with samples) along with play activities.  Each child will also receive a picture book to keep!
