Richmond CCRR Playgroups & Drop-In Programs
The CCRR runs various parent participation drop-in programs throughout the year which provide a safe, supportive environment where children and parents can play, learn, and grow together.
The sessions are led by licensed early childhood educators and are free to attend. They feature a diverse selection of activities, games, and crafts designed to provoke curiosity and encourage interaction among children and adults. Sometimes, there are even field trips!
The sessions also give parents an opportunity to network and make new friends in the community. As well, we regularly invite guest speakers to discuss different topics related to early childhood development.
