We provide grant-funded drop-in playgroups for young children and their caregivers sponsored by the Collaborative for Education Services (CES).
Come play!

What is CES and CFCE?

The Collaborative for Education Services (CES) is a non-profit educational service agency, committed to reaching and educating learners of all ages, and experienced in working with educators to help students learn and succeed. Many of our parent support programs are sponsored by the Coordinated Family and Community Engagement (CFCE) grant funded by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). CFCE programs are locally-based programs in your community that provide child development services and resources to families with young children.
