Arts and crafts program for toddlers
The Town of Oyster Bay has announced that the popular Toddler Arts and Crafts Program will be offered again this fall, beginning October 18, 2022. This 6-week program offers classes in the Community Hall of the city ice skating center at Bethpage and Hicksville Athletic Center, and is open to children ages 2-4.
“The city’s toddler arts and crafts program is a wonderful way to help support your little one’s development by encouraging their artistic expression,” Councilor Johnson said. “Classes will definitely fill up quickly as this program gives children the opportunity to meet other people their own age and explore their creativity.”
Toddler arts and crafts program runs for 6 weeks, starting October 18e, and residents who enroll their toddler in the program must choose one class per week, per child. Classes will take place on:
- Tuesdays at 10 a.m. for two-year-olds and 11 a.m. for three- and four-year-olds at the Hicksville Athletic Center in Hicksville;
- Wednesdays at 10 a.m. for two-year-olds and 11 a.m. for three- and four-year-olds at the Bethpage Ice Skating Center Community Hall; and
- Thursdays at 10 a.m. for two-year-olds and 11 a.m. for three- and four-year-olds at the Bethpage Ice Skating Center Community Hall.
Registration will be done online at oysterbaytown.com/parks from September 7e at 9 a.m. Residents must create an account on this website to register their child and upload proof of residency and the child’s birth certificate. Registrations will be closed when the program reaches full capacity.
Each lesson lasts approximately 50 minutes. The cost of the program is $35 per child who is a city resident and $45 per child whose caregiver is a city resident but not the child. A tutor must be present during the lesson. A gown and supplies will be provided upon registration.
The toddler arts and crafts program is operated by the City Parks Department, Recreation Division. For more information, please call (516) 797-7945.
