Kaleidoscope Play and Learn Groups

Kaleidoscope Play and Learn groups help families prepare their children ages birth to age 5 for success in school and life. This program supports family members at free weekly, facilitated play groups. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, older siblings, other caregivers and family members learn about:

  • Activities they can do at home to support children’s learning
  • Turning everyday activities – such grocery shopping, cooking and bath time – into early learning opportunities
  • Child development from birth to five
  • Skills children are expected to have when they start school
  • Community programs and services available to help them raise healthy children

Play and Learn Groups are typically facilitated in English, and they are inclusive to all children, languages, and cultures.
