Bananas - Informal Caregiver Play Group

Image advertising playgroups from Bananas at Oakland Public Library

With a focus on serving grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, neighbors, friends, and parents, playgroups will offer a space to connect with one another and build community. Our free playgroups will have children laughing, exploring, and creating and we will discover the many wonderful ways that play inspires learning. Join us weekly to pretend, play, celebrate music, create art, and dream up inventions while gaining new caregiving tools and learning about child development. A light snack will be served. Young babies are welcome if attending with a sibling who meets the recommended age group (two to five years).
