Family Place Update

In response to feedback from families, we are making a few changes.

  1. Registration will not be required
  2. The program will be from 10 - 11 am

Some things will not change:
  1. Attendance will be limited to 30 children and their parents or caregivers
  2. There will be a full hour of play, music, art, and stories.
  3. Programs will continue thru December 20 at
    • Live Oak on Mondays
    • Aptos on Tuesdays
    • Boulder Creek on Wednesdays
    • Scotts Valley on Thursdays
    • Downtown on Fridays

A child's work is play and this program offers a fairly unstructured opportunity for very young children and their parents or caregivers to explore art and music, to play with age appropriate toys, and to experience group activities like storytime.
