Baby Steps through Pretend City! 

September 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Sunday, September 12th | 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM 

This month’s Baby Steps is all about books, stories, and reading! We’re showing you how to incorporate books in your child’s life at different ages through cloth books, bright & colorful books, and interactive books to navigate the appropriate “reading levels” for your baby! Introducing your little ones to books at a young age will help them tremendously as they grow up!  

Specifically, for: Infant (0-18 months), grownups. For the comfort of our infant guests, no older siblings please.  

Monthly Theme: ABC’s & 123’s        

Purpose Behind the Play: Literacy and language developmentfine motor skills development, concept development, and curiosity demonstration  

  • Art Studio Sessions: Using foam letter stickers, they can learn the letters of the alphabet by spelling out their name! Peeling the backing from the sticker, holding it between their fingers, and placing it on the paper builds the small muscles in the hand (fine motor skills)
  • Sensational Storytime (8:45 AM): Make some music and sing along with us during a sensory-engaging circle time all about music and rhythm! Did you know that music can greatly contribute to a child’s cognitive and sensory development, as well as their literacy and language development? We hope to see you there!

Play Partner: Good to Go Coordinator, Pretendgineers and Brain Builders; our experienced stage staff of trained early childhood and child development educators. 

Grown-up Tip: Read your child a book and point to the pictures as you read! By 12 months, they may pat at, or point to pictures that catch their attention. This activity strengthens your baby’s understanding and use of language. By imitating and playing with you, your baby is developing communication and social skills.

RSVP: HERE| max 100 

Fee: When you register online: $10 per adult, infants and Pretend City Members are FREE!  $12 at the door
