When my son started going to the Trenton Makes - Words! sessions he wasn’t really talking. He was diagnosed with delay speech and by him going to the sessions, it helped him to learn words with the books that he got and songs with the music that was played there and on the CD we received. I really appreciate and enjoyed our time doing the sessions. Thank you!

Trenton Makes - Words! is a free vocabulary program that helps to prepare children aged 0-5 for kindergarten. Sessions support engagement between children and their parents/caregivers through themes based on cultural traditions, science, music and art. All programs encourage families to use fun, easy learning activities in their everyday lives.

Supported by a $1 million grant from the PNC Foundation, the Trenton Makes - Words! project is a two-year partnership between the New Jersey State Museum, The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey, and the Trenton Community Music School. Trenton is the 10th city to receive this substantial PNC support as part of a national initiative in the service of early childhood education.

Educators guide fun, interactive sessions to foster engagement between children and their parents and caregivers. Singing, storytelling, dancing, playing, and a hot meal are all part of each of the 2-hour sessions offered. All programs take place at informal and safe settings to ensure comfortable learning environments for families and their children.

Trenton Makes - Words! offers four sessions per week at three separate locations. To learn about locations, days of the week, and session times, please visit the program website at https://trentonmakeswords.org. To sign up, please call (609) 695-6274 ext. 132.
