These sessions are a targeted infant stimulation program for babies with their parents/caregivers. Join us for songs and rhymes and activities. All Baby and Me sessions will end with mini-parent chats to provide resources for your family. Programming will be geared to infants aged 0 – 12 months.
Under this temporary new virtual format, you and your children will able to participate in a variety of interactive, creative, fun activities including virtual games, show and tell, songs, rhymes, book readings, storytelling, etc, and anything else that you as a participant would like to add. In addition, please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about child development, support available in the community, programming, etc.
Please join us for an opportunity to come together with members of the EYET EarlyON team and other parents. We will be discussing everything from child development, providing support tools to you if requested, or just to grab a coffee and chat with each other. As the world around us starts to open up again, we want to keep our relationships strong with our community members and we hope you find this a good way to do so.
These sessions will get your little movers and shakers playing, dancing, and singing. All Toddling Times will end with mini-parent chats to provide resources for your family. Programming will be geared to toddlers aged 9 – 24 months.
With Health and Safety in mind, there have been a few changes to how our outdoor programs will operate. Each member of your family who plans on attending outdoor programming must pre-register; this includes parents/caregivers and infants. The names on the registration must match the names of the individuals who are attending the program. To ensure that everyone can join us, you must pre-register for each program on each day of the offer. Families must complete a COVID-19 screening. For the check-in station to move quickly, we ask that you the ticket on your mobile device, if possible. We ask that you sign up for up to one program per week to ensure that all families have a chance to participate as room is very limited!
