Learning Through Play!

June 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Have you heard? Children learn best through play. Well, I think we ALL learn best (at any age) through play! I would like to invite you to come play and let me share what I have learned over many years of working with children. Come explore tried and true activities. Experiment with new ideas that will enhance an environment of true learning fun. We will laugh, play and share experiences. We will even create an activity to take home. So bring your listening ears and creative ideas. Let’s pretend to be three years old again for a few hours and have fun!
