Parents can meet other parents and allow their child to socialize with other children their age. Play Groups will feature “Letter” themed activities for parents to do with their child as well as play areas that encourage their developmental skills.

Each child will take home the book “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault. A snack will also be provided.

Also, join the Great Start staff along with Pam Boepple from the Cass District Library for some nursery rhymes and classic stories along with music and movement and crafts.
