The Strong Start DC Early Intervention Program (DC EIP) Community Playgroups provide families with information about their child’s development, early childhood developmental screenings, early intervention process and community resources available to families across DC. The community playgroups are facilitated by early intervention professionals and provide a family-centered, child-interest driven environment for children to interact with their same-age peers, while families receive information about early intervention related topics.
Community playgroups are held on different days throughout each month depending on location. Registration opens at 10 a.m. two weeks prior to the scheduled community playgroup date and closes at 10 a.m. the day before the playgroup. Space is limited and parents need to register monthly for each playgroup session.
If you have questions or need help with registration, please contact Christopher Chapman at (202) 741-0792 or [email protected].
