BANANAS Playgroup

BANANAS is now offering playgroups at the Melrose Branch Library in January and February so you can bring your children to play and learn along the way!

At these free weekly playgroups designed for ages zero to five, we will engage in creative activities that inspire early learning. With a focus on serving the important workforce of family, friend, and neighbor caregivers as well as parents, the playgroups will offer a space to connect with one another and gain new ideas for learning through play.

Each event will include arts and crafts, music and movement, free play, circle time, storytelling, group activities, and a light snack. Playgroups are not only a wonderful opportunity to build community and bond with children, they also increase parenting skills, awareness of children’s needs, and child development and provide new ideas that can be replicated at home. Join us for the fun.
