I began taking my son to the Lapsit Lambs baby class when he was just a few months old. Since then, it has been wonderful having a variety of classes available as he continues to grow and develop. From playing a ukulele to learning first words in sign language, classes have helped highlight his interests. The WDM library has been a great place for learning and growing with my family!
