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


REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED; if bringing more than one (1) child, please register each individually.  You may register by going to the More Info. link below, or by going to the library web site. 

The Derby Public Library introduces a multi-week session of Family Place -1, 2, 3… Grow With Me.  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 several 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: The March 25th session will be a special edition in which our guest reader Tina the Tooth from Commerce Park Dentistry for Children ( will make a return visit to read a story to everyone.  Attendees will also learn the basics of keeping their teeth clean for a bright, healthy smile!
