Infants & Toddlers and Preschool age groups meet once a week in the morning for 45 minute sessions featuring hands-on activities using a variety of developmentally appropriate materials, books, and learning games that focus on pre-literacy skills.

The Infant & Toddler Play and Learn group was featured on WLOS's Never Stop Learning Segment.

To be eligible, children must reside in Buncombe County, be at least 3 years old, and not be enrolled in licensed child care. Younger siblings may also attend but materials are not provided for them. Registration before class is required by email or phone (828.350.2904 or [email protected]). Registration begins Monday, July 3 by email or phone.

“My son is more involved and excited about learning and walks around the house saying his ABCs and counting. He is more interactive with his peers and participates in circle time with greater enthusiasm." -Rebecca, Fairview.
