Berkshire Museum is proud to present a program for little ones ages 6-18 months and their caregivers.

Come explore the world through your babies’ eyes! Positive verbal and physical interactions are a key element in their healthy growth and development. Together we will read stories, sing songs, learn sign language, and stretch our bodies and minds. There will also be time for caregivers to get to know each other, share stories, and gain information and knowledge from our collective parenting experiences. Play and learn with us every Tuesday.
