Enhancing Child Development Through Creative Play

Teacher and StudentParents in Polk and Rutherford Counties have a great resource to equip them on the fact that kids don’t need tons of toys or fancy systems to help them learn. It’s as simple as child’s play.

The Play 2 Learn program promotes positive and healthy outcomes for our youngest children and supports parents and caregivers as they prepare their young ones for kindergarten. These are free, weekly two-hour play groups, involving parents/caregivers led by community facilitators that engage children and their caregivers in culturally and developmentally appropriate play activities. Through peer-to-peer and hands-on activities, parents and caregivers learn what they can do at home to support their children’s growth. In addition to the fun your children will have, meeting together provides parents and caregivers a sense of community and mutual support.

To inquire about participating in one of the three groups, please complete the form below. You can also contact Jessica, the Program Facilitator, at 828-289-5213 or via email at jessica@pfcfoothills.org.
