For Children and Their Families

We provide a supportive and relaxing atmosphere where children and parents/caregivers can meet and socialize. Our programs are designed to provide positive child development, promote school readiness skills, and introduce families to the resources and supports in their community. We believe that children learn best through play. Children and their caregivers are encouraged to engage in new activities, such as learning songs and rhymes, and listening to stories.
