   All our early learning groups are for children ages 0 -5 with a parent, guardian or caregiver, and include circle time, singing, stories, and activities that support cognitive, physical, and social-emotional growth and development. Families will also have an opportunity to utilize the Ages and Stages Questionnaire, a free tool, that provides parents with a snapshot of their child’s development. Registration is required for all groups.

Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)

Parents, you are your child’s first and best teacher. And as teachers, the right tools can help you support your child’s growth and development.

 CLICK HERE  to learn more about the Ages & Stages Questionnaires and how this free tool might help you to continue supporting your child's healthy growth and learning. 

PARENT QUOTE: I highly recommend ASQ as it is such a great tool that screens for Developmental milestones. Thanks to the ASQ, my son was referred to Early Intervention and his educational pathway is now a bright success!  Learn & Play Group Parent Participant
