This is my second list of Mom and Baby programs and activities in Toronto.
I decided to dedicate a full page to the Free Mom and Baby programs you can find in Toronto.
As I’m sure you already know, many new moms in Toronto struggling with budget. You don’t earn your full income anymore (quite far from that) and you have lots of new expenses on your new baby.
I don’t believe you should spend a lot of money on Mom and Baby activities. Especially before you tried all those free Mom and Baby amazing programs this city can to offer you.
If you find any other Free Mom and Baby program or activity, please comment below or send a message here.
Free Mom and Baby Programs and activities in Toronto
Ontario Early Years Centres: Free Mom and Baby Programs
The Ontario Early Years Centres located all across Toronto is a free government-run program offering daily activities for mommies and infants.
Keep in mind that even if the centre is far away from you, they may have other locations in your neighborhood that offer classes or drop-in programs throughout the week.
All drop-in programs, workshops, and classes are FREE for everyone.
To get started: find your nearest location, go to their main site to get your family number and download their schedule. Classes require pre-registration and the spots fill up very quickly.
Check here for a location near you.
Toronto Public Libraries
Some branches offer programs such as:
Family Time (birth -5 years)-Stories, songs, and rhymes for children who are 5 years and under with parents and caregivers. Drop-in, free.
Toddler Time (19 months -3 years)-Stories, songs, and rhymes for toddlers with parents and caregivers. Drop-in, free.

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 (6-18months). 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 online registration. You can also ask in person about the programs they are offering and the schedule for the next session.
