When kids play, they learn, and the world smiles!

Join us for free playgroups that teach children to laugh, explore, and create. Discover the many wonderful ways that play inspires learning. Playgroups offer grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, nannies, neighbors, friends, and parents a space to connect with one another and build community. Join us weekly to pretend, play, celebrate music, create art, and dream up inventions while gaining new parenting tools and learning about child development. A light snack will be served.

Space is limited and participation is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you have questions, contact Kamilah Usoro at or 510-658-7353 x. 140. Babies are welcome if attending with a sibling who meets the recommended age group (one to five years).
