“I really believe that I am a better mom, wife, friend and person because of what I learned by attending Playgroup.”

~A Playgroup Parent

 

Playgroup webpage

Our free, community Playgroups are offered in Alanson, Petoskey, 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 are available.  Facilitators are knowledgeable about community resources, as well.
