Preschoolers encouraged to join playgroups

Posted September 4, 2018

Recognizing the serious benefits of play, the Plymouth School District and its community partners facilitate several playgroups for young children and their parents.

These playgroups offer fun opportunities for children to participate in age-appropriate activities that stimulate learning, develop motor skills, and encourage social interaction.

The following playgroups are available:

  • Friday Playgroup offers a brief organized activity for kids of all ages and time for parent-supervised play. Friday Playgroup will meet from 9:30 to 11 a.m. the first, second and third Fridays from Sept. 7 through Dec. 21 initially at City Park, then at the Youth Center once the weather changes. Register with Community Education & Recreation at www.plymouth.k12.wi.us/COM.html or 892-5068; fee is $10/family.
  • Little Naturalists, also coordinated by Community Ed & Rec, lets little ones explore, discover and connect to nature. Little Naturalists, which is free and requires no registration, meets from 10 to 11 a.m. on the fourth Fridays from Sept. 28 to Oct. 26 at Meyer Nature Park and also the fourth Wednesdays from September through May (except December and March) at Generations.
  • Little Learners is a free opportunity for children ages 2½ through 4 with their caregivers to play age-appropriate games, enjoy music and movement, and hear stories under the guidance of Ginger Boldt, an early childhood teacher.
