Eagle Mountian Playgroup

We've been talking a lot about playgroups lately, and we're excited to announce a new playgroup in Eagle Mountain!

Tuesday, May 1st at 10:00am 
 Willow Springs Condo Club house 
(3400 E. Ridge Route Rd, Eagle Mountain).  

Previously, we've discussed the benefits of playgroups through the protective factors.  However, today I wanted to share another great reason to join a playgroup.

Participating in a playgroup is a great way to be involved in your community!  Each playgroup is run by a community playgroup leader.  Those who attend the playgroup get to meet new people in their neighborhoods.  Each person who attends also gets an active role as they help provide materials, personal skills, and playgroup lesson ideas.  

Utah County has many wonderful activities and learning opportunities such as museums, art galleries, library storytime, community events, and interactive venues.  Playgroups have the fun opportunity to take field trips out into the community and explore the wonderful resources available!

Feeling apart of a community also becomes another support network.  Utah County has an abundance of free or low cost resources for families and becoming familiar with community resources can help in time of crisis.

We encourage anyone to attend a playgroup.  Come participate and get to know your neighbors!
