What is Baby Time?
Baby Time is a fun time for babies from birth to 18 months and their parents or caregivers. Each gathering consists of rhymes, songs, and a few simple books. Baby Time introduces babies to literacy and encourages talking and positive interactions between the baby and the adult.
Baby Time occurs Thursday mornings from 10-10:30 a.m. in the storytime room.
Baby Time occurs year-round. Families can register for Baby Time at the library's front desk and begin attending the Thursday morning program when they are available. When your baby outgrows Baby Time, consider enrolling your child in Toddler Time.
Baby Time Guidelines
- Little ones do not stay still. Infants like to move and make noise, and that is just fine.
- If your baby starts to cry, feel free to take your child out of the room until he or she is ready to return.
- We will recite each song or rhyme twice. The first time you can listen. The second time, join in. Repetition helps our children learn, so you will even see repetition from session to session.
- Please make arrangements for any other siblings. Children younger than eight must be attended and supervised in the library at all times. (Refer to the Dwight Foster Public Library's Unattended Children Policy.)
