Location Westlake Porter Public Library
Sibling care? Registration required
RSVP Required*
Cost Free

Led by Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities Child Intervention Specialists, these hands-on workshops are designed to help parents facilitate play dates and positively discipline. Play group goals include teaching parents how to help their child to share, take turns and practice social skills. 

Please note that new classes are listed 30 days before the actual class date. You will only see the next month's class availability when the current month is over.

* RSVP required (choose from dates/times below). If this is your first class, please contact Laurie Demchak at lauriedemchak@connectingforkids.org for proper class placement. To enable many families to participate in this program we ask that you only attend one class per month. Due to the popularity of this class, registrations fill quickly. If you would like to be added to the wait list for a particular section, please contact us via email with the date, time and number of children participating/requiring sibling care.


This program is offered in conjunction with the Westlake Porter Public Library and generously supported by grants from The Cleveland Foundation and Nordson Corporation Foundation.
