BabyTime is an interactive early literacy experience intended for babies ages birth to 2 years.  It includes nursery rhymes, songs, puppets, rhythm activities, sharing a book, freeplay and more.  Babies are born ready to learn.  BabyTime is important to help lay the foundation for learning in a fun and relaxed fashion.  Although your child is years away from becoming a reader, he or she starts to develop the skills necessary for reading and writing at birth.  BabyTime is one of ELPL's Early Literacy programs that not only teaches and reinforces these important skills, but also makes them for for both parent and child.  

Upcoming BabyTime sessions:

  • November 28
  • December 5
