BUILDING YOUR VILLAGE

SESSION DATES: Ongoing Wednesdays starting December 8 from 10:00 - 11:00 AM

BRANCH: Northern Berkshire 

Being a parent is the most important job you will ever have. It is unbelievably rewarding, amazing and breathtaking, but it can also be exhausting, stressful and, at times, lonely! As a parent it is important to make connections with other moms or dads and continue to feel like part of a community. A great way to do that is through Baby & Me Playtime at the Y!

Baby & Me Playtime @ the Y is a program for children ages 6-18 months and their parents. Meet friendly local moms and dads to talk about your kids and have fun. Baby & Me Playtime @ the Y is a great time to share experiences, find advice, give support, and make new friends. All parents are welcome! A dedicated playroom for kids to learn, explore, and play with others. Playtime ends with 30-minutes of optional swim time in a dedicated pool space with you, your child, and other playtime members!

Taking a class with your child helps you connect on a different level without the pressure of feeding, crying, and burping! It allows you to relax and have fun with your child. You can laugh and play with each other as well as learn what your child likes and dislikes with regard to play.
