About this event

Are you interested in learning new, fun and developmentally appropriate ways to engage with your baby or toddler?  Interested in helping them develop their language skills but aren’t sure where to start?  Looking to connect with other families with young children? You are your child's first and best teacher. Join us from the comfort of your home to play, learn and grow with your little one!

Our LENA at Arts in Play family playgroups are FREE and open to families with children between 2-32 months of age who live in the Louisville area.

*Families must live within one of the zip codes listed below and must have a combined family income of less than $45,000.00.

Join Mama to Mama for a 10-week virtual playgroup session that incorporates the Arts in Play Nurturing Pathways curriculum and the LENA program that strengthens the adult/child dyad through interactive talking.  Interactive talk is a strong influencer for building early language, improving children's school readiness, and increasing more positive relationships with their primary caregivers.

Tuesdays 6-7

June 1 - August 2

Each virtual session will include stories, songs, movement and activities that enhance relationships and language skills.  Between weekly playgroups, families will use the LENA System, a pedometer for talk that tracks words, conversations and other data(only number of words, not meanings), to set goals and track language progress.  Research shows that talking more with babies is one of the most critical elements in their early brain development.  

Watch this video to learn more about the LENA system and how talk builds your baby's brain.

Families are eligible to receive a toy, book and gift card for each playgroup attended. Registration via eventbrite is required. Once pre-registration is complete you will receive an email from Mama to Mama with further registration instructions.

Weekly groups are facilitated by Elena Fillmore Diehl, Shawna Robinson and Shannon Stone Porter and are a partnership between Mama to Mama, National Centers For Families Learning and Norton Children's.
