Play to Learn Playgroups bring together parents, children and an early childhood professional to build a community of peers for support, foster nurturing behaviors, help families access needed services, and model developmentally appropriate practice. Hosted in our public schools, playgroups help schools to be community resources – in which parents are welcome and to which they can turn for needed supports.

Play to Learn Playgroups:

  • Provide developmentally appropriate activities for children and expose parents to such activities
  • Facilitate social networking and reduce isolation for families
  • Connect families to community resources such as Early Intervention, ESL classes, WIC, job information libraries, and available programs offered in the host school and introduce families to the Boston Public Schools so they can make informed choices about where to send their children to school

Each week, the two hour playgroup session includes:

  • Educational free play
  • Circle time
  • Snack
  • Time to share information about resources and activities
  • Gross motor and sensory play
  • Goodbye circle
  • ReadBoston's Reading Trail Lending library
