Mom & Baby Programs and Activities

Best Mom and Baby Programs and Activities in Toronto

When I started my Maternity leave, I was quite new to Toronto. For this reason, it was really hard for me to find out about all the Mom and Baby programs and activities this city has to offer for a new mom.
I googled a lot regarding Mom & Baby activities or Baby and Me class but I didn’t find much.
I think my LO’ was almost 10 months old when I learned about Ontario Early years center and I wish I knew about that before.
Today, I know that Toronto offers many programs for parents and baby. From Mom and Baby fitness class, workout, Yoga class, meeting for new moms, art, movies and so much more.

I listed here all the programs that I tried by myself or programs that have been recommended to me by other moms. Also, added some ideas for things to do with your baby in Toronto.

I hope you will find it useful. If you find any other Mom and Baby program or activity for Maternity leave, please comment below or send a message here.

Mom and Baby Programs and activities in Toronto:

Ontario Early Years Centres

The Ontario Early Years Centres located all across Toronto is a free government-run program offering daily Mom and Baby Programs and activities.

Toronto community Centres: Mom and Baby programs

The community centres in Toronto offer drop-in programs for babies and toddlers such as Indoor Play with Caregivers (1-5yrs), a 13 weeks program, free, drop in.

In addition, the centres offer programs for babies starting at 6 months such as Making Music with Caregivers (6-18 months). It’s not free, however, the cost is only $41 for 9 weeks, and will probably fit in most families’ budgets.

Keep in mind that you need to pre-register for this program in advance (a few months before). Their site is not very user-friendly. The best thing to do is to go to your nearest centre and register. You will get your family number to access the on-line registration. You can also ask in person about the programs they are offering and the schedule for the next session.
