“Through play, they learn. Through learning they grow.” This describes the experience enjoyed by participants of the quarterly Play, Learn & Grow programs here at the Library. If your child is 6 months to 3 years old and has not been involved, please consider it.
During this action-packed hour, multiple play stations are set up where children and their adults will have the opportunity to interact together. There are two types of building blocks, a kitchen area, musical instruments, play tunnel, foamy climbing blocks, and a large “road” learning carpet where children can “drive” cars, just to name a few. The joy of learning how to successfully crawl through a tunnel without getting stuck or to “make and serve coffee” is expressed on the children’s faces. These interactions also help with socialization skills and hints at that all-important lesson of sharing.
Squeals of laughter emit from the room as learning happens. However, for parents, it is good to know that this is not a structured program so families can leave when their child becomes tired or it gets perilously close to nap time.
Upcoming Play, Learn & Grow programs are on the following dates:
Wednesdays, September 21 or December 14, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Thursdays, September 22 or December 15, 10:00-11:00 a.m.
Registration is required.
I hope to see you soon as we grow and learn together.
