baby sitting“When entering a Babygarten program the first thing one notices is the relaxed and happy atmosphere. Babies and adults alike have big smiles on their faces. Some babies are toddling around, others are sitting and earnestly following the fingerplays, and others are just enjoying a nice cuddle with their mother or father. This is a program where everyone feels nurtured and welcome.” ~ Terri & Vicky, Norfolk Public Library, Norfolk, VA as quoted in ALSConnect, the Newsletter of the Association for Library Service to Children

“The beauty of Babygarten is that it shows parents that providing their children with brain-building opportunities is simple and a lot of fun.” ~ Norfolk Public Library, Norfolk, VA

"Our program has really taken off! We are so pleased with the response we've been getting. Last week we had a record 53 moms and babies!" ~ Courtney, Terrebonne Parish Library, Houma, LA

"Great work! Yours is the best resource we have found. Let us know if you update - we'll purchase!" ~ Amy, Kenton County Public Library, Covington, KY

"This has been a joyous experience! I love the program and our parents and babies love it so much too. Just to see baby faces when they like something, enjoy it or "get it" is just the greatest feeling. Bringing parents together is also a delightful thing to see - the shy ones gain confidence. They find the factoids interesting, useful and sometimes a good stepping stone to covnersation." ~ Karen, Baraboo Public Library, Baraboo, WI

"Your video demonstrating the quick pace of your classes has given me courage to ratchet up the energy level. Adults used to sit in chairs during my programs. (Now) all of my parents are up and moving with their babies. I'm nearly 60, so I suggested if I could - they could! Thanks for Babygarten!" ~ Mary, Amherst County Public Library, Amherst, VA

"Babies remember from one session to another. They rub their hands together and say they want to come to the library. I get such a rush from that! Thank you!" ~ Jeanne, Cromaine District Library, Hartland, MI
