Snowshoeing in South Park - Saturday, March 3 from 10 am-12 pm OR from 1-3 pm
Rangers from Allegheny County Parks will be leading and teaching about snowshoeing! Families do not need any prior experience, so come out and have fun! This program does require at least six inches of snow, so in the event we don’t have that amount, they will hold a Winter Nature Hike instead.  Snowshoe rental cost: $10 for ages 11+ and $5 for ages 5-10. Registration required. Please register for one time slot (a parent/guardian must accompany a child).

Baby Wear Dance - Wednesday, March 7 @ 6:30 pm
You won’t want to miss this preview dance/exercise class with your baby! Participants wear their baby (facing in) in a carrier while using music and dance to bond with their child, with music ranging from Pop to Funk to Soul. No dance or choreography experience is required. Babies must be in an ergonomic, two-shoulder carrier or equivalent.  Please arrive 15 minutes early to be wrapped and ready to dance! Both males and females are encouraged to attend! Registration required.

 

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten  
The concept is simple but the rewards are priceless! Read any book to your infant, toddler or preschooler -- the goal is to have read 1,000 books before they enter the door of kindergarten!

Just reading 1 book a day is:

  • 365 books in a year
  • 730 in two years
  • 1,095 in three years!

You have plenty of time, so take advantage of this wonderful early literacy reading program!
