BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Recreation & Parks Department announced the beginning of its “Parent and Tot Open Gym” program for parents and preschoolers ages five and under. This program will begin Nov. 4 and run until April 28.

This is an unstructured program where the parent is responsible for their children.
