If you’re looking for a great opportunity for your baby to play with other babies in an informal setting, join us for Play Dates at Ascension Parish Library. We’ll set out age appropriate toys for children ages birth through 18 months so they may enjoy all the benefits of play. Play burns energy, improves motor skills, and is a great outlet for creative expression. It allows children to communicate and interact with each other to develop important social and emotional skills. While you play alongside your baby, you’ll have a chance to chat with other parents who are experiencing similar ages and stages, so it’s great for you as well.
Play Dates will be held on Thursdays for three consecutive weeks from January 16 through January 30. All Play Dates begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 11:00 a.m. We encourage you to join us for the entire hour, but you are welcome to leave earlier, or pop in later if you’d like. For more information on this program, please contact the library in Gonzales at 647-3955, in Donaldsonville at 473-8052, in Galvez at 622-3339, or in Dutchtown at 673-8699.
