Play and Learn group offered for children 5 and under

The Parent and Child Center at Bristol Hospital was awarded a Quality Enhancement grant from the Bristol School Readiness Council to support a free six-week Play and Learn Group for parents and children age 5 and younger. This group will help participants meet other families with young children and offers early learning activities to help children develop school readiness skills prior to entering Kindergarten. The program includes story time, craft activities, free play and creative ideas to help prepare your child for Kindergarten.  Families living in StaffordElementary School’s district or other Bristol school districts without a FamilyResourceCenter will be given priority registration.

The program will run at StaffordElementary School (Gymnasium, 212 Louisiana Ave. in Bristol) on Mondays from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. from Jan. 6 to Feb. 24.

Pre-registration is required for this program, and space is limited.

To register, call the Parent and ChildCenter at (860) 585-3895.

Spanish speaking families are welcome and can call (860) 585-3776 to register.
