Planting Seeds Program Membership Information

Text Box: Angela‚Äôs PicThe proverb ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ means simply that. It takes more than one person to teach a child the ways of life; it takes a village, a community. Conveniently located between Livingston Park, Mother’s Beach, and Naples Gondola, our Planting Seeds Program is a Parenting Community for expectant and new families. It is a warm, welcoming, safe, community-based place to learn, laugh, play and grow together. We provide support, education, and activities that promote the interaction between developmental domains and enrich the parent child relationship.

About Our Program

How Our Program Works
At the heart of our Planting Seeds Program are our infant, toddler and preschool Playgroups for parents and children that are designed to allow different types of play to overlap and interact as your child creates, learns and grows. Themes change every 6-8 weeks while new activities, materials, projects, and tools are introduced weekly. Playgroups integrate different types of play such as sensory stimulation, creative arts, rough and tumble, risk-taking, fine and gross motor, dramatic, symbolic, language, construction, rule based, and mastery into the learning environment.

Our Playgroups
Our Playgroups have a limited number of participants because, in our experience, small, intimate groups work best, as they allow children, parents and team members to be hands-on while learning, connecting and developing new relationships. Our schedule is designed to fit around your schedule and the ever changing needs of your child. We offer activities in the mornings and evenings and on weekends. You may sign up for Playgroups anytime, space permitting.
