Bebes Activos and
Wallingford's bilingual playgroup meets on Thursday from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm at convenient locations around town. This is an opportunity for the parent and child to experience a program in both English and Spanish with a parent leader guiding the activities. Each playgroup consists of a free play to engage children in games and activities; then there is an age appropriate craft for parents and children to do together; a snack time which is followed by a story time with songs that follow a seasonal theme. Children must be accompanied by a parent/grandparent/care giver. The program is free and it is offered at the WE CARE Family Resource Center (FRC); Spanish Community of Wallingford (SCOW) and the Ulbrich Boys and Girls Club (BGC).

PLAYGROUPS for children birth to 5 yrs of age.
Every child deserves to play but how and where do they learn to play? From the very first meeting in the hospital with their parents they are ready to listen and learn. Sounds and sights set things in motion for this great experience. Parents are the first teachers so get ready to have fun with your little one.
When you want to expand the experience, Wallingford's WE CARE offers free playgroups in English and Spanish called The Playful Cruisers and Bebes Activos.
Come meet other families and young children and play together!
