Therapeutic Play & Learn Groups

Dance movement therapist, volunteer and children dancing

Therapeutic Play and Learn groups are back and they are LIVE! Join us every Thursday from 6-7:30 for the next 5 weeks. Our team members, Jan, Jessica, Sarah, and Rhonda have been on the move making play kits and planning 5 great sessions for you to play along with from home.

If you haven’t yet picked up your play kit, there is still time! Call us at (616) 559-1054 to arrange a time for pick-up.

Therapeutic play groups support families of children ages 0-5 with special needs. Activities include:

  • speech therapy
  • occupational therapy
  • dance/movement therapy
  • sensory therapy
  • early childhood development basics

Joining our play and learn groups means becoming part of the CTC community! You’ll connect with:

  • experienced pediatric therapists
  • live and recorded playgroup sessions
  • free play & learn kits
  • a community of people who are invested in your and your family.

Questions? Please email us or call (616) 559-1054.
