Our ProgramsDevelopmental Playgroup
Developmental Playgroup is one of CDR’s core services.
Playgroup provides a chance for infants and toddlers to interact with other children of the same age, to explore and play in a safe and exciting environment that might not be available to them at home, to practice the skills they’ll need once they start preschool, and sometimes to work on areas of special need.
Developmental playgroup is available to children enrolled in CDR’s home-based services or therapies.
Developmental playgroups look like pure fun, but everything about them is designed to challenge children to use their motor skills, learn new words, and play on their own as well as with their peers.
Playgroup is offered Monday through Friday at CDR’s main office in Norge, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and children are typically assigned to one day per week; 15-20 children participate each day.
The group is made possible by the United Way, the Williamsburg Health Foundation, Colonial Behavioral Health, CDR’s Children’s Services programs, the localities, and other programs, as well as private donors. Community volunteers and students support the work of the playgroup staff.
While the children are busy playing and learning, the parents have a chance to observe them and to meet with other parents for information sharing and support in CDR’s Parent Group.
