February 25 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Our mission is to provide a safe and friendly atmosphere where young children and their caregivers can meet regularly to play and grow. Our drop-in play groups encourage free play, creativity, and social interaction, and also include school-readiness programming. All families from Easthampton and nearby towns are welcome.
We are governed by a parent advisory committee. We learn together and grow together for the betterment of our families, our community, and our world.
Our drop-in play groups comprise time for open/free play (9:30 – 11:00 am) followed by snack and an interactive story time (11:00 – 11:30 am).
During our open play time children and their caregivers can make new friends, develop vital social and emotional skills, and most importantly, PLAY! We have a large indoor play room with areas for art, gross motor development, reading, imaginative play and more as well as a large outdoor space with swings, ride-on toys, and more. Open play is a great opportunity for grown-ups to make new connections as well.
After open play, EFC provides a nut-free snack to all children. This is followed by an interactive story time with songs and games that provides school-readiness practice for children.
