A chance for young children—and their parents—to play and socialize. Play mats, tunnels, and tents give children a stimulating atmosphere to play with their peers, while parents get a much welcomed chance to chat with other parents about the joys and challenges of parenting.

Parent/child playgroups are offered to provide parents an opportunity to enhance their child’s social and emotional development through play. Just as importantly, social opportunities for parents are provided. When parents have an opportunity to talk with each other on a regular basis it can help them feel more connected, supported, and better able to cope with the challenges of parenting. Typical activities include free play, singing, arts and crafts, and guest speakers on topics of interest to parents. The playgroups meet weekly at the same time and place, enabling families to form a healthy habit of having fun together.
