    Hi.

    Hi Geetha,

    It depends on yr area; like, in our township, they have activities right from the birth at the library. Maybe you can call them up and ask whether they will allow other township people too.

    Long time back, would take my son to Barnes & Noble for story telling, coloring etc. 2 times in a week. It was 4 yrs back and now, not sure..Again, call and check them out..

    Not sure abt YMCA..but, give a try there too.

    Good luck..

    Rgds.

    Play group

    Geetha,

    I don't know what your schedule is like, but a play group would work well for your baby. You can Google your local area groups and see if there are any Mom's groups for children in the age group you are looking for. If not, you can start one - maybe you can put out pamphlets in the Inidan stores/at work, and other places where your target audience would frequent.

    Diva.

    Starting a playgroup

    Geetha,

    You can google your area and see if playgroups already exist. If not, try putting up flyers at the Indian stores saying you would like to start a playgroup and give out an email address (Not phone number!). Once you get some responses, meet with the Moms and come up with activities/plans. I love Gymboree - they have great activities for all ages. Do you have one in your area?

    hi geetha,

    i am anu and live in west covina. i have 13 month old daughter. even i had the same query. when i explored i got the following info.

    YMCA Conducts swimming classes for one year old babies.

    there is a mommy and me class which conducts activities for children of all age groups. u can visit the website Mommy and Me

    there is play group named gymboree . u can also enroll in that. the web address is
    Gymboree Play & Music | Welcome


    u can also take ur kid to the local library where in they conduct story time classes once in a week which is absolutely free and they even teach our children to the concept of drawing and coloring.

    hope this information is useful.


    Regards,
    Anu
