Beginning on January 15, the Early Childhood Council of La Plata County and the Durango Public Library present a series of free drop-in workshops for parents/caregivers and their preschool age children (3-5). The six Play & Learn Workshops will focus on key categories of kindergarten readiness and share developmentally appropriate activities that will support growth in early literacy, math, motor and social emotional skills. Funding for the Play & Learn Workshops is provided by The Ballantine Family Fund to support kindergarten readiness.
The Play & Learn Workshops will take place monthly from January - June 2020 at the Durango Public Library in our Storytime Room at 10:30 am. There is no registration required and attendees do not have to attend all workshops. The scheduled dates and their themes are:
1/15 Way with Words: Language
2/19 Break the Code: Early Literacy
3/24 1,2 Buckle My Shoe: Early Math
4/15 More Than Scribbles: Early Writing
