Baby Wordplay Fairmount

Baby Wordplay theaters are early literacy centers where families with little ones come to play with words & language. Language is fun as we pursue our mission to grow readers and thinkers from birth. Check each theater for schedule!

The first 1000 days are critical to brain & language development. Young children, parents and caregivers gather to sing, read and play with words and sounds. Building language is the key to a strong foundation for learning. Baby Wordplay storyplays engage families using age-appropriate children's books, telling stories through fingerplays and nursery rhymes, singing, laughing with puppets, and shaking our sillies too! $15 drop-in; $10 with Baby Wordplay Card.

Mission: Early literacy theaters and bookstores dedicated to raising readers from birth through interactive storyplays and our sales of librarian selected, diverse children's literature.

“I think everyone should be paying attention to this,” said Stephen S. Morse, a professor of epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. “It’s not just going to be the elderly. There will be people age 20 and up.”
