Play Matters Enrichment Series

This inclusive caregiver involved preschool meetup group is designed to give parents/caregivers additional tools to support their child’s development in an age appropriate manner. The goal of this enrichment group is to share age appropriate developmental skills and model what different developmentally appropriate learning activities for the 1.5-4 year old preschool age group can look like. During this meet up the facilitator will model how to engage in your child’s play to help them think, process and learn more about the activities they are already interested in.


This meetup group will provide a place for children and caregivers to engage in inclusive, neuro-affirming activities and sensory play that is a vital part of development, and will allow everyone the opportunity to enjoy the process and help take the guesswork, prep and mess out of the learning process for caregivers


In addition this playgroup will provide a community for caregivers to offer support amongst one another, a place to share resources and ideas, and have social opportunities to bring this population of children and caregivers together.
