Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced today that the Town will offer a Toddler Arts & Crafts Program throughout the months of January and February. This 6-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 January 8th, from 9 am to 3 pm, at the Town’s Parks Department Recreation Office in Town Hall South, 977 Hicksville Rd, in Massapequa.
“The Town’s Toddler Arts & Crafts program has proven to be an extremely popular one here in the Town, as it is a wonderful way to help support your toddler’s development through nurturing their artistic expression,” Supervisor Saladino said. “I urge those who wish for their toddler to participate to come down and register beginning Tuesday, January 8, as this 6-week program fills quickly on a first come first serve basis”
The Toddler Arts & Crafts Program is 6 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), 11 am (three and four year olds), or 1:30 pm (three and four year olds) from Wednesday, January 30 through March 6. Classes will also take place on Thursdays at 10 am (two year olds only) or 11 am (three and four year olds) from January 31 through March 7.
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 care giver 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. A smock and supplies will be provided with enrollment.
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’.
