Great Start Play & Learn Groups

Families with children Birth to 5 years old can give their child a Great Start at one or more of the GREAT START PLAY & LEARN GROUPS.

There are in-person groups and grab & go groups to join. There are morning, evening, and weekend events and we are constantly adding new hosts to our list of offerings so be sure to check the list often to see if there are updates!

Play and Learn Groups are for children from birth to age 5 with a parent or caregiver. Older siblings are 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.
