Play is a vital part of a child’s life. It is truly the way young children learn. Children also learn from others. For children with learning disabilities, experiences with more typically developing peers can occur less often. These times of playing with peers can offer tremendous models of speech, motor and cognitive skills. Children learn quickly from other children. The BBP will provide an opportunity for all children to play and learn from each other in a supported environment.
Each week will include a theme and involve crafts, cooking, and sensory-motor fun!. There will be music, movement and story time. BBP is for children 3-5 years of age. Parents are requires to stay at playgroup.
