Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Michele Johnson announces that the popular Toddler Arts & Crafts Program will return during the months of October and November. This 8-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 begins Tuesday, September 29th from 1pm to 4pm at the Town’s Parks Department Recreation Office located in Town Hall South, 977 Hicksville Road, in Massapequa.
“We’re happy to announce the safe return of the Town’s Toddler Arts & Crafts program, which is a wonderful way to help support a toddler’s development through nurturing their artistic expression,” said Councilwoman Johnson. “Classes fill up quickly on a first-come, first-serve basis, so register today!”
The Toddler Arts & Crafts Program is 8 weeks in duration, beginning October 13th, 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 for two-year olds and 11am for three-and-four-year olds at the Ice Skating Center Community Room in Bethpage;

Each class is approximately 45 minutes. 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.
