INGHAM PLAY & LEARN GROUPS 

Join us for free, fun, interactive activities for children ages birth to kindergarten entry. Trained Parent Educators use the Parents As Teachers curriculum to provide Story Time, Music, Singing, Movement, Play Dough, Creative/Art Activities, Sensory Table, Exploration and Peer Interaction.

Families must reside in one of the 12 Ingham ISD School Districts: Dansville, East Lansing, Haslett, Holt, Lansing, Leslie, Mason, Okemos, Stockbridge, Waverly, Webberville and Williamston. Groups provide a shared learning opportunity for the caregiver (i.e. parent, grandparent, etc.) and the child. The caregiver must remain with the child(ren) at all times.

The Winter session begins January 14 and ends March 22, 2019.  To register, call 517.244.1267.
