10:30am-2:30pm – Developmental Check-Ups – It’s natural to measure your child’s height and weight, but what about your child’s development? Astor Early Childhood Programs and United Way of Dutchess County are teaming up with the Tivoli Free Library to offer FREE developmental check-ups for children 4 months to 5 years old. This service provides another tool to measure a child’s growth and success. Schedule an appointment for a private screening with a specially-trained parent educator, who will help complete a brief questionnaire about your child’s development, which will be reviewed in five areas: communication, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, problem solving, and personal/social. Immediate results will let you know where your child is excelling and where you can step in and help. The parent educator will also help connect you with area resources if necessary. Children may be screened every 2 to 6 months, depending on their age. Appointments are available between 10:30am and 2:30pm. To pre-register your child for a free developmental check-up call Astor at 2-1-1, or 1-800-899-1479.

10:30am – Lap Sit Story Time – A fun, interactive language enrichment program with Miss Penny, featuring songs, rhymes, finger plays, and stories for infants accompanied by an adult caregiver. Birth to 24 months.

6:00pm – Gentle Movement w/Mimi – This class is a gentle workout combining elements of chi kung and yoga with relaxation and breathing techniques, and is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. Wear loose comfortable clothes and bring a mat. $8 per session.
