Program Description: If you run a licensed family child care program, you’re invited to our Playgroup at Melrose Library! Bring your little ones ages 2 to 5 and join us to explore how play can inspire meaningful learning and encourage healthy child development. At different activity centers, kids will paint, create, build, imagine, pretend, and invent while caregivers learn how simple household items can be used as tools to promote early learning. Each playgroup will focus on a theme such as Language and Literacy, Social-Emotional Skills, and Math and Science. Facilitator Soyla Madrigal will provide resources and information on ways to incorporate these concepts into everyday life as opportunities for children's educational growth. Playgroups are a great space to bond with children and meet other family child care providers who are raising our youngest learners. We look forward to seeing you at one of these playgroups that are held every Thursday from October 5 to October 26 at the Melrose Library. Playgroups are designed to be 4-week series that build upon each other each week. When you register, you will be signed up for the entire series. Register online prior to attending. Please include the number of children you will be bringing with you. If you have any questions, please call Soyla at 510-658-7353 x. 127 or email
