*** IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL FAMILIES ATTENDING A TRENTON MAKES-WORDS! SESSION ***
Trenton Makes-Words! sessions will be on break between
August 29 and September 9, 2017.
ALL SESSIONS WILL START AGAIN THE 3RD WEEK OF SEPTEMBER:
Tuesday sessions begin September 12 at 10:00 AM
Thursday sessions begin September 14 at 5:00 PM
Friday sessions begin September 15 at 10:00 AM

** To Families Attending Sessions At The Trenton Free Public Library **
Starting September 16, the Saturday sessions will be moved to the New Jersey State Museum on 205 W. State St., Trenton. They will no longer be at the Trenton Free Public Library.
Sessions foster fun, interactive experiences between parents/caregivers and their children ages 0-5; both when you participate in a program and afterward in your daily routine. They are long-lasting learning opportunities that complement your parenting efforts to make sure your children have the learning and social skills they’ll need when they start kindergarten.
Each month, a fun theme guides the immersive lessons and the carefully chosen words of the week. Visit our calendar to choose the best location, the day of the week, and times for you.
We offer 4 weekly sessions hosted at three permanent locations:
(Tuesdays & Thursdays) Family Success Center, South Ward, The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey: 635 S. Clinton Ave., Trenton
(Fridays) Family Success Center, North Ward, The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey: 1554 Princeton Ave., Trenton.
(Saturdays) New Jersey State Museum, 205 W. State St., Trenton.
Each session includes:
- Free transportation to/from sessions
- Free meal or snack
- Take-home books and activity cards every week!
- Invitation to community appreciation events featuring music, food, and craft activities!
