Parent-Child Playgroups

“Playgroup is the only time our son gets to play with children his own age; without this program, we would be lost.”
– Parent

10 Simple Things Every Child Needs

  1. INTERACTION – Spending time watching baby and responding to her cues
  2. LOVING TOUCH – Cradling, holding and giving him lots of hugs
  3. A STABLE RELATIONSHIP – Being there when your baby calls
  4. A SAFE, HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT – Providing a safe place where your baby's free to play and explore
  5. SELF-ESTEEM – Giving your baby praise for all the good things that she does
  6. QUALITY CHILD CARE – Leaving your baby with people you trust to teach and watch him grow
  7. COMMUNICATION – Even before she can talk, your conversations with your baby mean so much to her
  8. PLAY – Your baby’s play is fun, but it's also his ‘work’ and how he learns about the world
  9. MUSIC – Singing to your baby and playing music for her are special and fun for all
  10. READING – Reading to your baby every day and showing him books with pretty pictures create a wonderful bonding experience

What your child needs most is you!
