Playgroups

Our playgroups allow family members and their children to enjoy the opportunity to make social connections, engage in age appropriate play with peers, while learning to build social and emotional skills with qualified leaders. Through songs, crafts, art, music, nature exploration and play, children’s intellectual, social and emotional competency is enhanced by the experience.

Speak with our program leaders, CCCP staff and other parents to learn about community, local youth programs, and Cape Cod Children’s Place resources and services for families with young children, from Barnstable to Provincetown. Contact us for additional support needs at 508-240-3310.
