Play Time…Not Just for Fun…It’s How We Learn

mc playgroups smallMontgomery County, it’s time to play!  Thanks to the generosity of Montgomery County United Way, Easter Seals Greater Houston has begun hosting play groups in Montgomery County for children with disabilities ages 6 months to 4 years and their siblings.

mc play group 3It’s well known that children learn best by playing, so Easter Seals’ play group leaders incorporate music and games to improve the children’s gross and fine motor skills and comfort levels in social settings.  The children work on taking turns, following directions, transitioning, and playing well with others.  The children are heaped in positive reinforcement, and achievements both big and small are celebrated.

MC play group 1The inaugural Montgomery County play group took place on Friday, June 19 at the Montgomery County United Way in The Woodlands.  A second one is planned for this Friday, June 26 from 10-10:45 am at Conroe Library, 104 I-45 N, Conroe, TX 77301 -with more to come!

Please call Andi Fry to learn more about these new play groups and other amazing opportunities at the Easter Seals in Montgomery County.  713-838-9050 ext. 313 or afry@eastersealshouston.org.
