Parent and Child Together (PACT)

Parent and Child Together (PACT) helps young children learn social skills in a playgroup setting.

PACT is a program that brings children together, along with their parents and siblings, for a two-hour socialization experience in small group play and interaction.  In the group, children learn to make choices, make new friends, and take turns.  They create with paint, play dough, glue, blocks, music, and other fun activities.  They learn simple routines and rules of play.  They gain independence in taking care of themselves (washing hands before snacks and putting toys away).  They grow, play, and have fun.

Parents benefit from sharing experiences with other parents.

All families participating in Beginnings’ Early Intervention, Family Foundations Academy, and Parents as Teachers programs can participate in all PACT groups free of charge.

Participants of Nurse Family Partnership are eligible to attend playgroups.
