Parents As Teachers Playgroups welcome all families in the community with children younger than 3 years of age (Older siblings may attend). Playgroups are led by a parent educator and will have activities that are enriching in the areas of language, social-emotional, motor and intellectual development. Playgroups are literacy-based, meaning the theme is based on a children’s book. The activities are for parents and children to enjoy together as well as with friends from the playgroup. For more information, contact Jennifer Klamm at firstname.lastname@example.org or (913) 845-1519.
