Play Central

Monday and Wednesday mornings
9:00 – 11:00 am
October 7, 2019 – April 29, 2020
in the Gym at Barnes School, 20090 Morningside, GP Woods

A weekly drop-in play program that allows children to actively enjoy a wide variety of toys and games to enhance both large and small motor skills. Children will enjoy music and movement, arts and crafts, and circle time, all while helping to develop social skills, independence and the confidence to explore new skills.

While their children play, parents and caregivers have an opportunity to interact with each other, as well as possibly find friendship, support and advice.

The season kicks off on Monday October 7th, 2019 and runs through April 29th, 2020. We will meet Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9am-11am in the gym at Barnes Early Childhood Center, 20090 Morningside Drive, GPW.

The cost is just $5 per family per visit.

We are looking forward to another fun year!!

Sally Wittwer, Play Central Coordinator
