Baby Gym reopens at Peace Lutheran
Peace Lutheran Church will reopen its Baby Gym on Saturday, Dec. 2. The gym offers a place where parents can play with their children and connect with other parents in a relaxed atmosphere.
The gym is free and open to the public on Saturday mornings, 10 a.m. to noon. Children must be 6 or younger and accompanied by a parent or caregiver.
The gym offers slides, climbers and tunnels for the development of gross motor skills. A separate playroom features a kitchen set, tool bench, dress-up clothes, and other age-appropriate toys for dramatic play.
Over the years, families from various neighborhoods in and around the Heights have utilized the Baby Gym.
Peace Lutheran Church also has a Baby Shop, which offers—free of charge—gently used toys, baby items and children’s clothing, sizes newborn to 6X. The shop is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to noon.
The Baby Shop welcomes donations of new or gently used baby items and clothing Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or when Baby Gym is open. (No mattresses or large furniture will be accepted.)
Peace Lutheran Church is located at 3740 Mayfield Road in Cleveland Heights. For more information, call 216-382-4545.
