Great Start Play and Learn Groups
Despite COVID-19, there are many opportunities to connect with other families and children across Muskegon County. Visit our Community Calendar to find Play and Learn Grab 'N Go Packs, and virtual, recorded, and in-person gatherings at various times. For updates, please sign up for our e-newsletter or contact Allison Keessen, firstname.lastname@example.org. Play and Learn Groups are for children from birth to age 5 with a parent or caregiver. Older siblings always welcome too. These literacy-based groups promote kindergarten readiness through developmentally appropriate educational play. Children and parents build social connections and also gain access to other resources if desired.
