GRCC Play & Learn

Tuesdays 3-4:30 PM

Play and Learn GRCC strengthens the skills of early childhood caregivers and educators to enrich the quality of learning experiences of young children. If you are a guardian or caregiver of a child ranging from birth to 5 years old, you can join us in the gym at Streams for this free, weekly, 90-minute program, where we talk about child development, early reading strategies, and positive discipline. The curriculum for the Play & Learn groups is aligned with Michigan Department of Education’s expectations for kindergarten readiness, which will prepare your child for success. No registration needed!
