Join us for a brain-building program on Zoom for children 0-3 years and their parents or caregivers from Borough Park Library. Families will enjoy stories and activities designed to encourage brain development and early learning practices.  Each week we will read books, sing songs, and do fun activities that promote language development, social-emotional skills, and more. Parents and caregivers will have the opportunity to learn about community resources, hear from expert guest speakers, and connect with peer support networks. Prepare your child for 3-K and toddler for Pre-K! Each sessiion will have parts in English, Spanish and Mandarin.

Each week, we will explore a different theme:  READING, TALKING, SINGING, PLAYING, MOVEMENT, and EMOTIONS. Parents and caregivers will learn how to use these practices to develop their children’s oral language and pre-reading skills. Families will also receive FREE books, toys and learning materials, available for pickup at the Mapelton, Kensington, Homecrest and Paedergate branches as a part of our grab-and-go services.
