    What Are Play to Learn Playgroups?


    Play to Learn Playgroups (P2L)

    Play to Learn Playgroups bring together children (ages 3 to 5, not yet in kindergarten), their caregivers, and an early childhood teacher. These weekly playgroups will build a community for family support and work on positive classroom behaviors. Families will also have access to needed resources, information and ideas for age-appropriate activities to practice at home. This is a program sponsored by the Anchorage School District.


    What are the benefits of joining a P2L Playgroup?

    • Provides age-appropriate activities for children and parents
    • Nurtures social family connections and friendships
    • Connects families to community resources


    How can my family participate?

    • For each Play to Learn cohort, a maximum of 7 families will attend. 
    • Each cohort is a 4-week commitment where families are expected to attend one hour, once a week.


    What happens each week?

    • Educational free play
    • Circle time
    • Time to share information about resources and activities while connecting with other families 
    • Gross motor and sensory play
