Playgroups for Children Birth to 5
Quality play time with parents can lead to improvements in skills such as communication, engagement, sensory awareness, cognitive ability and creativity. Each session of the parent-child playgroups will run for seven weeks and will provide caregivers with play strategies and tips for engaging children with special needs to make playtime more fun and meaningful as well as exposure to a variety of types of play and ideas for low-budget activities that can be done at home. Parents and children can practice their play skills in a supportive setting.
Sessions are conducted in English and Spanish concurrently for various age ranges between birth and 5 years of age and at various days and times to accommodate the needs of the community.
Program made possible by a contribution from the Fred and June MacMurray Foundation.
