Age Specific Playgroups and Special Classes Our age specific playgroups provide an opportunity to play with your child and socialize with other parents in a clean, safe, friendly environment . We work with Cape Ann Early Intervention and host an integrated playgroup for community children and Early Intervention children who may have speech or physical developmental delays. In the past, we have offered special classes such as LEGO Building Challenge, Mini Greenies, and Shake, Rattle and Roll music. Check the calendar for these activities.
Presentations and workshops by area professionals on developmental topics like healthy eating, toilet learning, early brain development, CPR trainings, literacy, and more, with childcare provided.
Parent Talk informal sharing session for parents to receive support and information
Birth to Three runs structured playgroups that serve separate age groups from infant to 3 & 4 year olds. Many of the groups begin and end with a brief circle time and include stories and gross and fine motor activities geared to the child’s age. For babies, it is a time for parents to meet, ask questions and exchange information. Each session runs approximately 6-8 weeks. The center also holds weekend activities for working parents that find it difficult to take part in other playgroups. Please check our calendar and sign up for our newsletter for more information. Do you have an idea about a new group? We would love to hear it!
