Play and Grow Together offers a variety of learning opportunities for infants and toddlers (6 months through 24 months) and their parent, grandparent, or another caregiver. Under the direction of a highly qualified teacher, caregivers encourage their young children to explore materials to increase their motor skills, communication, and social and emotional well-being.
Carefully planned activities may include music with movement components, literacy experiences through language and print materials, and purposeful relationship building opportunities. Caregivers are provided with guidance in order to aid their child in reaching their full potential in all developmental domains during the program and then at home.
