March 21, April 18, and May 16 (3rd Thursday of every month) from 1:30 pm – 2:15 pm

Join us for another year of cherished experiences with your children and the friends from St. John’s Senior Living Community. These monthly playgroups follow simple structured play for 45 minutes. This is a great chance for your little one(s) to get out and meet new kids and brighten the day of seniors. By joining these playgroups you and your children will learn patience, kindness, and the chance to make new friends. Our friends at Saint John’s benefit tremendously from the interaction with our children.

At each playgroup, we follow the same structure to help children and residents alike become familiar and comfortable in the playgroup. We begin with a hello song followed by a book, a craft, and an activity. If time permits, we will have free play followed by our goodbye song. We always have a new fun theme each month!

Children will develop awareness of and relationships with members of the community they would otherwise not meet. Residents in the assisted living facility will have a chance to be around our energetic and humorous cutie-pies and offer their love and gentle care for them.

We are encouraging participants to sign up for an entire fall session if possible. If there are only a few dates you can make, please let us know. Signing up for a session helps the residents see familiar faces and helps to ensure participation in our playgroup. Please reach out with questions.
