Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Michele Johnson announces that a Toddler Arts & Crafts Program will be offered during the months of January and February. This 6-week program offers classes at the Town’s Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center Community Room and Hicksville Athletic Center, and is open to children ages 2 through 4. Registration will take place on January 6, 2021, from 1 pm to 4 pm, at the Hicksville Athletic Center, 67 South Broadway, in Hicksville.
“The Town’s Toddler Arts & Crafts Program is a wonderful way to help support your toddler’s development through nurturing their artistic expression,” said Councilwoman Johnson. “Classes will certainly fill up quickly as this program offers children a great wintertime activity”
The Toddler Arts & Crafts Program is 6 weeks in duration, beginning January 26th, and residents who sign their toddler up for the program must choose one class per week, per child. Classes will take place on Tuesdays at 10am (two year olds only); Tuesdays at 11am (three and four year olds); Wednesdays at 10am (two year olds only); Wednesdays at 11am (three and four year olds); Thursdays at 10am (two year olds only); and Thursday at 11am (three and four year olds).
Each class is approximately 30 to 45 minutes 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.
Due to COVID-19, class enrollment will be limited to allow for proper social distancing and temperatures will be checked upon arrival. Masks must be worn by children and caregivers for the length of the class. Daily cleaning and sanitizing takes place prior to and after classes.
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 ‘2’.
