About Peapod Playgroups

Playgroups include free play, singing, and parachute activities and meet weekly supporting families to form the healthy habit of having fun together!

Tunnels, tents, blocks, puzzles, and the ever-popular parachute provide opportunities to play with other children and foster social-emotional development and school readiness. Parents and caregivers get a chance to share the joys and challenges of raising young children with peers.
