Mommy & Me is an active drop-in play group for babies to age 5,  accompanied by their moms, dads, grandparents or caregivers. Your child will find lots of fun things to enjoy from crafts to play-dough, ride-on toys, trains, cars, kitchen center, dress-up clothes, floor toys, puzzles and a baby centered area. An outdoor play area is open weather permitting.

Free play is followed by a snack time where caregivers bring a healthy snack to share  (fruit, veggies or crackers).Our morning concludes with stories, finger plays and songs. We love to celebrate holidays with special arts and crafts, songs, stories and maybe even a treat or a pot luck lunch.

Our Clothing Exchange Room (aka Lydia's Closet) is open weekly offering free donated kid's clothing, shoes, toys, books, and adult clothing.  Our motto is "Take what you need - donate what you don't need."

Mommy & Me is a great way to meet other families in the community in a relaxed, safe environment. Coffee and goodies are provided for caregivers. We follow the school calendar, breaking over Christmas and Spring Break.
