Play and Learn Station is an imaginative, hands-on, parent/child literacy learning center that helps prepare children (ages birth to five) for kindergarten. Its purpose is to stimulate children's natural curiosity to discover and explore, and to help them master fundamental skills necessary for school success.
Play and Learn Station is a collaboration between Family Connections and Shaker Heights Public Library, and was designed with the belief that parents are their children's first teachers.
FREE drop-in sessions are offered throughout the week and are open year-round. Pre-registration is not required.
