Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced today that the Town will offer a Toddler Arts & Crafts Program throughout the fall. This 8-week program will be held at the Town’s Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center Community Room, and is open to children ages 2 through 4. Registration begins September 12th, from 9 am to 3:30 pm, at the Town’s Parks Department Recreation Office in Town Hall South, 977 Hicksville Rd, in Massapequa.
“This program is a wonderful way to help support your toddler’s development through nurturing their artistic expression,” Supervisor Saladino said. “The Town’s Toddler Arts & Crafts program has proven to be an extremely popular one here in the Town, and I urge those who wish for their toddler to participate to come down and register beginning Monday, September 10, as this 8 week program fills quickly on a first come first serve basis”
The Toddler Arts & Crafts Program is 8 weeks in duration, and residents who sign their toddler up for the program must choose one class per week, per child. Classes will take place on Wednesdays at 10 am (two year olds only) or 11 am (three and four year olds) from Wednesday, September 26 through November 21. Classes will also take place on Thursdays at 10 am (two year olds only) or 11 am (three and four year olds) from September 27 through November 22.
Each class is about 30 minutes to an hour long. The cost of the program is $25 per child who is a Town resident, and $30 per child whose guardian is a Town resident but not the child. Space is limited and upon registration, the child’s birth certificate and a tax or utility bill will be required to validate age and proof of residency. A guardian must be present during the class.
The Toddler’s Arts & Crafts Program is run by the Town’s Parks Department, Recreation Division. For further information, please call (516) 797-4125, and hit prompt ‘4’.
