The Learn & Play Parent and Child Activity Groups offered by Russell Child Development Center have begun in Garden City. Learn & Play uses an evidence-based curriculum to support early development in all domains, with a focus on literacy (cognitive, social and emotional, speech and language, fine motor skill and gross motor skill development).

Groups are held twice a month for one hour in 28 locations across RCDC’s 19 southwest Kansas county service area. They are free to parents and children birth through age 6. During the session, parents will interact with children through various learning stations, plus snack and story time.
