Play and Learn

Play and Learn is a weekly drop-in program for parents, caregivers and children from birth to age five. 

Held every Tuesday from 9:00 to 10:30 am at the Family Resource Center 201 Stange street Merrill.

Each week staff will provide a lesson for parents, and an activity for parents and children to do together. The activity will build skills to help children be ready to start school.  You’ll also get ideas for more activities to try at home.

your child’s development.
