Come play and learn with us! Snack is included and an outside play area is available. Newborn to age 5 with caregiver. 9:30 to 11 a.m. Thursdays.
Kaleidoscope Play & Learn groups are organized play groups for young children and the people who take care of them – grandparents, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, parents and other family members and friends. At Kaleidoscope Play & Learn, children and caregivers take part in play activities that support children’s early learning. They also get a chance to meet new friends, hear more about other early learning and family support programs in their neighborhood, and to get out of the house and have fun. Caregivers also learn more about child development and what they can do at home to support the healthy growth and learning of the children in their care.
