Playgroups & Training

EARLY LEARNING PLAYGROUPS

Our Goal at Holly Ridge has been to provide developmentally appropriate experiences to children with diverse abilities, in a setting that enhances the strengths and supports the needs of all children. We strive to create an environment that provides children with opportunities to learn to follow routines, build peer relationships, and to develop foundational skills for future learning.

Our programs promote all areas of development through the use of play and research based techniques of early learning. Your child will be in a playgroup taught by certified early childhood teachers and licensed therapists, in a caring, fun-filled, integrated environment.

Are you concerned with a child’s movement, play, language, feeding skills or medical diagnosis? 
Anyone may refer a child for developmental screening. Holly Ridge Center is here to answer your questions and address your concerns.

A TYPICAL DAY IN THE CLASSROOM

The playgroup curriculum emphasizes the following basic areas of child development: problem solving, communication, fine & gross motor, social and feeding skills. Each child has an opportunity to learn new skills and practice old ones, through a variety of specially designed fun activities. Daily activities include free play and sensory exploration, song time, small group fine motor activities, gross motor play and snack time. 

STAFFING

Our playgroups are unique in that they are staffed by a team of certified teachers and para educators. Therapists also consult during the playgroup sessions.
