Toronto's Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) is currently hosting a 'Baby & Me' program that gives parents an opportunity to enjoy adult learning in a baby-friendly atmosphere. Designed for children two and under, the event provides a unique opportunity for parents to take in the museum with other parents and their kids.
Baby & Me is a bi-weekly event held at the ROM on Mondays and Fridays from the fall to the spring. The event includes guided tours led by trained museum educators who showcase a different gallery each week. The event allows mothers, fathers and caregivers to engage in stimulating adult conversations, while letting infants marvel at the unique museum displays from the comfort of their stroller or carrier. As a result, the event encourages family bonding in a stimulating, yet baby-friendly environment.
The event ultimately gives parents and their children a designated time to enjoy the museum with other caregivers.
