“I really believe that I am a better mom, wife, friend and person because of what I learned by attending Playgroup.”
~A Playgroup Parent
Our free, community Playgroups are offered in Petoskey, Charlevoix, Boyne City, East Jordan and Central Lake. The weekly groups offer enriching play for children age 0-60 months and preschool siblings. Parents learn, share and network.
- Fun activities
Parents and young children participate in games, crafts and music.
- Informal support for parents
We get high marks from parents who say they benefit from engaging in fun activities with their children while networking with other parents.
- Trained playgroup facilitators
A fun and relaxed setting in which parents learn about early childhood development, age-appropriate toys/activities and approaches to discipline.
- Parenting resources
A lending library of books and videos on childhood development and parenting is available. Facilitators are knowledgeable about community resources, as well.
