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.
