You and child are sure to love this engaging, structured playgroup led by Amy Feldman, a specialist in early learning and development. We will practice being a part of a group, work on our growing social skills and have fun following directions as we play. Activities will include art, science, storytelling and lots of pretending! This is a great way for your child to make some new friends and get ready for preschool. Parents and caregivers will play along with us and will have a chance to ask questions about age-appropriate behavior and child development.
