Join us for a virtual playgroup that focuses on supporting and encouraging your child’s development. There will be music, movement, story time and an opportunity for both children and parents/caregivers to connect with one another. This is a great way for you to learn strategies to help your child learn and grow, and an opportunity for your child to move, sing and have fun with you and other children!
