The City of Gonzales held it’s very first city-wide Playgroup for Friends, Family and Neighbors at St. Theodore’s Church. These monthly playgroups are not only spaces for young children to play with each other, but also an opportunity for parents and caregivers to connect with one another and learn early childhood development activities they can easily implement at home.
As these playgroups continue, staff will be asking caregivers to provide feedback about what they are learning and how the playgroups can be improved. After this first meeting, all survey respondents shared they learned activities that they could implement at home.
Led by the City of Gonzales Recreation Department in partnership with the community, the playgroups are funded in part by the City of Gonzales Measure K and United Way Monterey County, with collective action support from Bright Beginnings.
