New Playgroup Format

The Issaquah Highlands Playgroup has decided to make a few new changes this fall after a very relaxed summer schedule to provide the children a little more structure and learning opportunity. Each Thursday when we meet we will keep to the following schedule. Each mom can volunteer for a week and theme then provide the craft, snack and book for that session. In addition, we will still have free play mats for children who are too young to participate in some of the activities.

Playgroup has had a slow Summer!!

The Issaquah Highland's playgroup is still meeting on Thursday mornings from 9:30 - 11:00 at the fire station. We hope to have our Tuesday morning time slot back in the fall, but currently play time is very casual. With the warm weather, vacations schedules and parents staying home with school age children the attendance is down, but it is still a fun place for the kids to play and interact with one another. We look forward to having new members join the group, so please come and check it out!
