Group Connections offer opportunities for parents/caregivers and children to participate in a variety of hands-on learning activities. In addition, it is a great opportunity to connect with other families. Most of all, we hope you will have fun with your child.

    Group Connection family events are organized and designed for parent-child interaction, so parents can learn by observing their child and other children. The events typically have a variety of theme-based activities for families to enjoy together. Parent educators or community partners lead the events and provide useful information to parents.

    Group Connection parent-only sessions are opportunities to share information about parenting issues from a variety of experts on different topics. These sessions may be held virtually or in person.  All Group Connections are provided at no charge to families, but registration for the event is requested.
