STAY, PLAY AND LEARN is a wonderful gathering place for adults, and a fun place for young children to explore. Children use big muscles on the climber, learn about spatial relationships as they build block towers or have fun creating with paint or clay in the art studio. Imaginations are engaged in the play kitchen where a child can 'cook' dinner for mom or play dress-up with grandpa. Social skills are enhanced as children practice taking turns with a favorite toy or the rocking horse. Digging in the sand table with a friend is all kinds of fun for the senses.Our library provides a quiet corner to read one of our many children's books. Helpful books on bedtime routine, temper tantrums, or fun family meals can be found there too.Stay, Play and Learn is also a place to make new friends. They might be from your own neighborhood or from anywhere in the big wide world. You will hear Russian, Mandarin, Spanish, French or many other languages given the rich ethnic diversity of our community.Friendly staff and parent educators are on hand to help you feel welcome, introduce you to new friends, suggest a great parenting book or discuss any parenting questions you might have. Parents and caregivers supervise their own children. Each play session ends with clean up and special Family Center songs.
