There is an amazing playgroup for infants, toddlers and preschoolers, or at least I think it is amazing because I run most of the playdates, but we meet a couple times a week and have the children do different things like paint, color, cook, play with playdough, make music, go outside and play, have water play ect, ect, ect. It works on building the skills that daycare teachers are required to help build without actually ever having to send them to daycare. I try to theme most months with a color and topic (holidays make it easy, but we do animals, antartica, carnival, ect). The playdates are still laid back, the children are invited to participate in the activity, but if they are more interested in playing with eachother they can continue to do that instead, we go with the flow. There are a couple other playgroups I have seen, but most are for either older children or seem not to meet, not to say there are no others out there, but we welcome new members and most of all it is completely FREE! I do this to benefit my own children and to make new friends.
