Anyone who is interested can participate in an AP Play & Support Group at Amaya Papaya.  Just show up when the group that interest you is scheduled and plan to meet some new friends!
Our Buddies Play & Support Groups are age specific "parent and me" play groups created to help families connect through age-appropriate PLAY sessions & parent discussions, thereby creating a cohesive community. 
 
During the session parents explore a variety of ways to connect with their child through PLAY and discuss topics important to adults in a safe & non-judgmental setting. 

PLAY sessions vary by age group and may involve: finger plays, sensory play, tummy time, lap plays, parachute play, puppet shows, bubbles, dancing, story time, science, skill building and color, letter, number association.
