 "Learning Through Play – Plus"

This playgroup is designed for children ages 0-5 years and is designed for the one-to-one parent to child interaction. Every child must be accompanied by a separate adult. Parents will observe and explore with their child, learning about his/her development, temperament and interests while having fun!
