Hometown Playgroups and Baby Chat

In a preventative effort to keep our community healthy, Playgroups are taking on a new format!

Hometown Playgroups 2020-2021

Continuing to support, engage & create in a unique and appropriately distanced way

Tuesdays 10am – 11am: Rail Trail Stroll
Join us at the Johnson Food Shelf Parking Lot before the Mill Park entrance along the rail trail. While masked (children older than 2 & all caregivers), we will push strollers or help little ones ride bikes & striders along the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail heading east. Come exercise & explore nature with us!

1st & 3rd Thursday 8-9pm: Caregiver Chat
Every other week we will hold space (via ZOOM) for the caregivers to congregate in understanding solidarity. We will address sensitive and timely topics such as raising children in a global pandemic, developmental milestone woes, & self care opportunities to be found in daily life. Look for the link on our Playgroup Facebook page! (begins October 8)

Last Friday of the month: Take Home Craft Bags
Once a month there will be a craft bag waiting for you & your family outside of the Lamoille Family Center. Take home materials to make crafts and lasting memories!

For more information, call 802-888-5229

Note: For now, Baby Chat! is on hold.

Our playgroups are made possible with help from Vermont Child Development Division, Building Bright Futures, and the Green Mountain Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation.
