This year we have revamped the playgroups that are offered at the Judy Center. We will continue to offer drop-in playgroups, but will now have more formal cohorted playgroups. All of the playgroups we will offer this year are designed around the Maryland Early Learning Standards.
The cohorted playgroups will be on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays this year. There will be four playgroups with specific age ranges. The cohorted playgroups are designed to build upon each other. Each year your child will progress through to the next playgroup and take the skills they have learned with them. A commitment of attending at least 3 times a month is required. Registration for these playgroups is required. If you feel you cannot commit to attending 3 times a month then please join us for one of our drop-in playgroups.
The drop-in playgroups are on Mondays and Tuesdays. These playgroups are less formal than our cohorted playgroups and do not require registration. Registration for these is optional. We are continuing with Read for Health and Let’s Move this year, but have added two other drop-in playgroups. Little Learners will be for children ages 2-3 and Learning Together will be for children ages 3-4.
As well as our in-person drop-in playgroups we will be offering a virtual option for families, Virtual Story Time is for children and families to enjoy a song and story. This is intended for children ages 2-4.
