Play to Learn
Offers a variety of activities for families with children ages 0-6.  Activity areas include dramatic play, crafts, blocks, books and puzzles, sensory and fine motor.  Weather permitting, we will also have outdoor activities.  Children will enjoy family style snack time and circle time is offered at the end of the program.  This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to explore and play together in our space.
Family style snack time – Our main centre staff will be hosting and providing snack from 10:30 till 11:00 am. Our little mini-me’s just want to be like you and we all know that they observe everything that we are doing. Sometimes in our busy lives mealtimes can become a source of stress.  This is why at OEYC we are big fans of the family style set up. It provides the ideal setting for your child to experience casual conversation, turn taking, table manners and building new friendships.

Infant Sign Language
Using their hands to communicate comes naturally to babies.  Whether it’s as simple as pointing at what they want or as complex as a complete sentence using signs, sign language simply helps parent and child communicate better.  Signing is easy to learn, and fun!  So come out and see how you can improve communication with your baby.
Infant Massage
