The Somerville Family Learning Collaborative (SFLC) is gearing up for its fall playgroup sessions. Session 1 playgroups start on October 4 and run through December 17, 2021. Several indoor playgroups will be offered at the SFLC’s new location – the Edgerly Building located at 8 Bonair Street in East Somerville. Outdoor playgroups will also be offered and will be held at the Somerville Community Growing Center (22 Vinal Ave.). All Somerville families with children birth to 5 years old are welcome to register for one group per week.
SFLC Playgroups are a place to meet other parents/caregivers with infants, toddlers and preschoolers. Playgroups also provide children an opportunity to play together in an educationally-rich environment. All groups focus on a variety of experiences that support children’s development in literacy, math, science, music, art, large motor, fine motor, and social-emotional skills. Virtual playgroups and resources, and a variety of parent support groups will also be available. Visit the SFLC website and look under Prenatal – Early Childhood Services and Supports to learn more and for a complete schedule of Fall Playgroups and Support Groups. SFLC playgroups are free and registration is ongoing throughout the session until all groups are fully enrolled.
