Preschool Power Hour Playgroup – Wednesday
June 15, 2022 @ 11:30 am – July 27, 2022 @ 12:30 pm
NOW has partnered with the Putnam Public Library to host our free Preschool Power Hour Playgroup. This playgroup takes place on Wednesdays from 11:30 – 12:30 p.m. every week. This program starts on June 15th and runs through the summer! Children will get free lunch during this program.
This program was designed as a playgroup to pair senior citizens with toddler age children together to cultivate meaningful bonds. The seniors for this program have been carefully selected, background checked, and will be paired with a toddler. evidence has shown the significant impact on wellbeing when seniors and toddlers are paired together in a prosocial, educational, and purposeful environment.
Each playgroup will start with seniors and toddlers reading a fun and educational story selected by the Putnam Public Library staff. Following the story NOW staff will work on movement skills, basic fundamentals of sports, fine and gross motor skills, and agility! We will use a combination of obstacle course equipment, arts and crafts, sports, sensory play, and more!
Registration is not required, the program is canceled in the event of rain.
