   All our early learning groups are for children ages 0 -5 with a parent 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.
