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, at a variety of locations from Barnstable to Provincetown. 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, Cape Cod Children’s Place resources, and how to access community services for families with young children from Barnstable to Provincetown. Contact us for additional support needs at 508-240-3310.

All programs are no cost and funded by MA Dept of Early Education and Care through a CFCE grant, the Children’s Trust, and other local grants.
