DALEVILLE -- Babies in Daleville might be ahead of the game in learning thanks to a new program at the library.
The Baby Learn and Play program is held every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. at the Daleville Public Library. It is open to babies and toddlers, completely free of charge.
Little ones spend the half-hour class singing, reading and playing. It is also an opportunity for them to interact with other babies their age. The program organizer said the first year is crucial for learning.
"The babies learn a lot because before they are one year old, they've learned every sound that they need for their native tongue," Instructor Nancy Moon said. "So it's very good that they learn to read, or hear the reading, hear the songs, and the repetition because that's part of the building of their language."
Parents said they can definitely see a difference in their child's learning and social skills.
