Newborn Network to offer Play and Learn sessions in Oak Creek

Play and Learn is a free, twice weekly activity session where parents and caregivers can engage with their children in fun learning activities.

Presented by the Newborn Network, Play and Learn sessions will be offered from 9:30-11:30 a.m. starting Sept. 8 at the South Routt Community Center in Oak Creek.

Any family with children up to 36 months is encouraged to join. All planned activities are based on the developmental stages of the participating children. Parents, caregivers and their children will be supported by a trained facilitator at each session, which will feature a combination of parenting education, child and caregiver activities, and networking opportunities with other families.

These sessions are not limited to parents and their children and anyone who cares for children in the age range is invited. Siblings are welcome as well.

For more or to enroll, email or call 970-879-0977. Follow the Newborn Network on Facebook at

Play and  Learn Sessions are made possible through a collaboration with the Town of Oak Creek, the South Routt Community Center Board in addition to generous funding from the Buell Foundation, Craig-Scheckman Family Foundation, United Way of Routt County and the Yampa Valley Community Foundation.
