Hi everyone!

Hope everyone is having an enjoyable Martin Luther King weekend!  Now that winter has really started we are hoping to help you plan out your week with your little one(s).  Does your little one like keyboards, drums, banjos, sing-a-longs, storytimes, puppets or yoga?  Look below and see what we have listed!  This is our first list of weekday events so if you know of a great Monday-Thursday drop in event or playspace that we haven’t listed you can email the information to us at events@achildgrows.com.  Click on the title link for the event for more information on the event.

This week coming up we also have the grand opening of a new playspace, a La Leche League meeting, a new mom posture & core clinic with Stephanie Severe and a seminar on toddlers and sleep!

Here in Brooklyn we have many branches of the Brooklyn Public Library and many of them do storytimes for toddlers and babies.  We haven’t had a chance to list everything yet so don’t forget to check the Brooklyn Public Library for more events during the week!  Here is the link to the January calendar: Brooklyn Public Library calendar

Have a fun week and always check with the place before you adventure out in case there are any schedule changes.

Stay warm!
