What people are saying about Babygarten:

We have been going to Babygarten from the time my baby was 4 months old. My son has taken a love towards books, and the interaction with other babies has also helped in his development. We look forward to this class every week. In fact, since we like it so much I tried other libraries so I could do more classes, but this class is the best by far!

I began taking my granddaughter to Babygarten when she was just 3 months old. Within 2 months, she enthusiastically recognized her favorite songs and would babble along in class. We saw an extreme growth in her understanding and language that by 12 months, she had about 40 receptive and expressive words in her vocabulary. We have continued to sing the songs from Babygarten class and read books to her. It has been amazing to see her develop a love for reading and learning! Now when she sees me, she immediately says, "Grandma, book!" We know it all began in a classroom full of infants at the library. Thank you Babygarten!
