In this facilitated playgroup for parents and their children 12-36 months (younger siblings welcome in a carrier), parents will have the opportunity to connect with other working parents, to talk about challenges of balancing parenthood and work, and to learn about resources in the community for them and their children. Much of the group time will be free play for the children, where they can explore age-appropriate toys and simple activities, interact with other children and investigate new toys and activities. Each meeting will end with a circle time with songs and a book. This group will be facilitated by Rachael Morris, First Connections volunteer, Concord Public Schools elementary school teacher, and experienced working parent. Masks required for adults, subject to change during the session. Group limited to 10 families or 20 people. One or both parents are welcome. Please let us know when registering who will be attending, so we can get an accurate count. This group will meet 7 times between Sept. 17 and November 12 on Saturdays from 9:30-10:30 at First Connections in Acton. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
