Playgroups

Parenting is a hard job. The Welcome Baby Playgroup program provides an opportunity for parents and their children to receive interaction as well as provide tools for parents to feel more confident and ready for parenthood. Studies have shown that there are many benefits to both the parent and child who participate in playgroups. Some of these include: providing opportunities for parents to share experiences, enhance self esteem, validation of parenting skills, feelings, and ideas, new points of view, social support, and a sense of belonging. Likewise, playgroups provide children with a stimulating environment and strengthens social skills while they have fun playing and learning with their parents and peers. Participating in playgroups will be an invaluable experience for everyone involved.

We currently have 3 playgroups  

If you are interested in joining a group in your community, please e-mail us at welcomebaby@unitedwayuc.org and we can get you signed up.  In order to maintain connection and keep playgroups functioning well, we limit each playgroup to 20 children. If we do not have a playgroup in your community and would be interested in supporting a new playgroup, please e-mail us at welcomebaby@unitedwayuc.org and we can help you get started!
