NEW GROUP! FREE BOOK FOR FIRST SESSION! Wednesday—“Together we Play”, at Cromwell Court, 168 Barnstable Road, Hyannis, 11:00 am-12:00pm, January 17th-February 21st , Miss Barbara—This group is open to residents of Cromwell Court, as well as to members of the community

“Together We Play” is a playgroup which will focus on the activity of play, for families with children birth to 3 years of age.   Parents and their little children will play together observing, exploring, sensing, mirroring, and initiating.  Why is play important?  We will learn how play helps the child learn his/her world, and helps to create a special bonding with the parent. Using our five senses, we will create a safe and stimulating landscape of opportunities for group members to play.  If we’ve lost touch with play in our own lives as adults, we will begin to remember how playing is a delight.  This instinct is an inborn “talent” in each of us which may be ignored but is always waiting to be remembered.  This group is led by an expressive arts therapist who is also interning in Transpersonal Drama Therapy at Cape Cod Child Development.  Please join Ms. Barbara and enter the world of play!

FREE   Registration required, please contact Jen or Renea at Cromwell Court—508-208-7979

‘Your Golden Feather’ is a Creative Arts, self-discovery support group series for Parents, childcare provided.  This group series draws upon the rich road map of ageless fairytales, myths, and nighttime dreams, to unveil inspiration, renewal, and guidance for each person’s current soul-drama.  Taking time to nurture ourselves also blesses our children. As a closure, each member of the group is invited to share, if they are willing, a brief enactment or other creation on a personal or social theme explored during the series.  FREE   Registration required
