Playgroups

Family Services

Children play and interact with other children, contributing to their development.

Children play and interact with other children, contributing to their development.

Parents socialize and discuss the challenges of being a parent. Playgroups also offer plenty of opportunities for parents to learn about ways to help their children develop skills they will need for a lifetime of success.

Playgroup facilitators create play spaces for young children and parents – providing an opportunity for children and parents to interact, explore and socialize. Information about the Family Center and other community resources is available at each playgroup.
