Our New Spring Baby Play for families with 3-9 month olds as of January 1, 2019, will be offered on Tuesdays 12:30-2 PM.  Both these classes will start the week of January 21st. Stay tuned for registration information.

Are YOU well-organized, detail-oriented, and technologically savvy (i.e. have knowledge of HTML or equivalent website development software).
