Providence Talks play groups use a groundbreaking teaching model to encourage families to talk and read more to babies and toddlers and increase their exposure to words!
Play groups are for children between the ages of 1 and 3 and their parents and caregivers.
Play groups will meet for one hour a week for seven weeks and enjoy hands-on creative activities, books and snacks. Each participating family will be issued with a "word pedometer" and coached on how to use it in their daily lives. The "pedometer" will count the number of words and conversational interactions experienced daily by the child. Recordings will be made one day per week for the duration of the program and families will receive a free book to take home and keep in exchange for a weekly report from the counting device.
Registration is required. For more information call the Rochambeau Library at 401-272-3780 X1906.
