 Bagels and Blocks ~ A drop-in playgroup!

Make new friends while having fun with your child! 
Brattleboro Area Jewish Community is excited to offer a Jewish-based drop-in playgroup for parents/caregivers and their infants and toddlers (0-5 years).

Bagels and Blocks is a facilitated parenting group as well as an activity group for babies and toddlers. These fun and friendly gatherings feature songs, stories, crafts, snacks, and free play. We celebrate a different holiday each month.

Playgroups are on the 1st Sunday of each month from 2 pm -3:30 pm

Playgroups are free and open to all.
We look forward to meeting you!
