Great Start to offer free playgroups

The Great Parents Great Start program offers free playgroups to children ages 0-5 in Lake, Osceola and Mecosta counties. Funding for the playgroups comes from the Great Parents Great Start Grant through the Michigan Department of Education.

Playgroups give children the opportunity to learn, grow and play while participating in developmentally appropriate activities. Playgroup is designed to build on the strengths of families as we share creative ways to encourage children to build their skills. Parents will have time to meet and talk to other parents.

The Great Start program will be located in Baldwin at the elementary portable from 5 to 6 p.m. on Mondays.

Please note that if school is closed due to inclement weather or staff development days, there will be no playgroup held that day.
