Playgroups Move to Community Center

Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success (EVICS) has some exciting changes happening with their weekly playgroups. Playgroups occur every Wednesday from 10-11 throughout the year. Over time we have changed the format and location based off parent and staff feedback. Currently we are averaging 10 families (with their children) each week and we hope our groups continue to grow! Playgroups provide a critical opportunity for social connections between parents and their kids ages 0-5. We offer rotating themes focusing on certain developmental domains to enhance your child’s growth and development and not to mention they are A LOT of fun!

Starting in March we have formed a new partnership with the Estes Valley Community Center. Playgroups will continue to be offered on Wednesdays from 10-11 at our new location-The Community Center. There may be some special exceptions to that schedule, and we will make sure to share that through our email list as well as Facebook page. Each week we will rotate through the Community Center amenities. The schedule for March is as follows: 7th-The pool, 14th-gym, 21st-pool and there will be no playgroup on March 28th. On pool days please bring a towel and on gym days please wear non marking sole shoes.

Strollers are welcome in the gym space. Attending our playgroups will not require membership or a daily pass fee. They will continue to be a free community service for any family with children ages 0-5 participating in our program. This is not a drop off program, and caregivers are required to stay and actively engage in the activities with their children each week.
