Play 2 Learn Groups feature hands-on activities using a variety of developmentally appropriate materials, books, and learning activities to focus on emergent literacy skills and appropriate parent child interactions. We have classes at North Wilkesboro Presbyterian church and other community sites. Play 2 Learn Groups are available to families of infants/toddlers and preschoolers who are not currently enrolled in licensed child care. Caregivers learn what to expect from their children as they grow and develop as well as the ways children learn through play. There are opportunities to meet other parents and learn about available community resources. Using the resources from the Kaleidoscope Play & Learn curriculum, caregivers are introduced to strategies to develop children oral language, phonological awareness, and emergent writing skills and how to incorporate activities into everyday situations with their children.
