Episode 11 - NUSD Offers Free Playgroup Sessions for Parents and Young Kids
Preschool playgroup sessions are free and fun learning experiences offered to Natomas Unified families. Sessions usually consist of playtime, music, and movement with other families and children. Children must be at least 10 months to 5-years-old to participate.
“Play is the foundation of everything for child development. That’s where you learn how to socialize, to make friends in a positive way,” Pam Nabor-Martinez, an NUSD Child Development Specialist said.
The playgroup sessions are a great way for kids to learn and socialize. “So the pandemic kind of hit him pretty hard. He got really anti-social, so I started bringing him out more after the pandemic. Coming here, meeting friends, we can see a difference. At first, he doesn’t want to play with anyone, but he’s opening a lot more,” Jenny Du, a parent said.
Parents must attend the 1.5-hour sessions and kids must not be currently enrolled in the preschool program to register.
Session three begins January 31st to March 10th. Session four begins March 28th until May 12th. To sign up, please email Nabor-Martinez at: firstname.lastname@example.org
