Chat, Play, Learn Thursday at 10:00 am

Chat Play Learn is a "Family Place" program. This class encourages social and verbal interaction between parent and child, as well as among children. As they play with developmentally appropriate toys, children discover skills that are informally reinforced. There is also opportunity for creative expression with weekly art activities. Community experts in the areas of language development, nutrition, play, etc. are available to answer parent questions in the area of their expertise. Children ages 1 to 3 are welcome along with siblings from birth through age five. In person registration begins on Feb. 6th, as we do ask for a parent/gaurdian signature confirming availability for all three weeks of the program. Limit: 20 families.
