MY GROWN-UP AND ME

Join us with your grown up for a fun play group in the park!

Toddler: Play Adventures will bring materials for me to play with that I can use in any way I imagine! You can talk with your friends about me! I can socialize with kids my age! Please, it'll be fun!

Grown up: Well, hmm, when is it? Where is it?

Toddler:   Monday, Tuesday 9:30am-11:00am  at Rahilly Park and Friday from 9:00am-11:00am At Play Adventures site: 655 G Street!

Grown Up: Its probably insanely expensive! How much is it?

Toddler: Its only $3 each day! Subsidized tuition thanks to First Five Merced!

Grown Up: When does it start? 

Toddler: Starting Monday November 27th 2023. And guess what there are FREE monthly Workshops and FREE child care during those workshops! (you decide what the workshops are about from a list of topics!)

Grown Up: Do I need to register?

Toddler: Register here or just come and register there!

(Yes, this is a fictional Toddler or one with impeccable verbal skills)
