Play therapy and child care group 

The WBI is excited to offer a play therapy and child care group for members of our community! We feel this is a great opportunity for parents and guardians looking to secure short term child care, or for parents in need of an engaging activity to share with their kiddos. WBI clients, if you are looking to remain connected with your children during recovery, please talk to your counselor about the option of attending play therapy group during your already scheduled group therapy hours. 

Play therapy group is open to preschool and elementary school children, aged 3-12 yrs, and will take place every Saturday at 10:30a until 12p at the Grateful house. Also, children attending this group will be invited to stay until 12:45p for less structured game activities and snacks. We hope our child care services will provide busy parents an extra opportunity for self-care. (If you are a parent in need of child care for an older child, please talk to WBI staff to see if we can accomodate).  

If you have any questions about our new child care services, please ask our staff. We would love to see you and we hope you will join us!
