Come play and learn during these free, 8-week adult-child group times for families of children 3 months to 5 years old who are not enrolled in licensed child care.

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.

Play & Learn for Adults with Infants and Toddlers

 

Play & Learn is a FREE 8 week series of adult & child activity groups where families learn what to expect from their infants as they grow into healthy toddlers, learn preliteracy & group socialization skill building activities, discover the ways children learn through play, and meet other parents.

New groups start November 14th. Call or email before class date to register. Registration before class is required by email or phone. Registration begins November 6th. To be eligible, children must reside in Buncombe County, be at least 3 months old and not enrolled in licensed child care. Siblings may also attend.

"We really enjoyed Play & Learn and feel so fortunate to have this opportunity. My daughter has become more social with her interactions with other children. She loves playing with all the toys!"

“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.
