Hello Everyone!

Care and Play with Me has been open since October and we are steadily growing! Recently (in November) we were featured on the front page of the Telegraph Herald and we received some new families who learned about us from that article! This month’s theme is “We Live Healthy!” and we’re learning all about healthy choices we can make every day. We can eat healthy foods, do some fun physical activities, and take care of our bodies! We’ve been visited by the Visiting Nurse Association of Dubuque to do a “Color Me Healthy” workshop which was a lot of fun. We got to learn about different types of foods we can choose and what colors they are, we also learned about fun and healthy activities we can do. All while listening to cool music, dancing, and coloring! Being healthy can mean many things. It is an awesome opportunity to join a program for 2 hours a day where you can do fun activities, meet new people, experience socialization, and eat a snack!

Every time a new family joins us, there is an impact. Wether it’s the use of simple sign language, learning songs with Grandpa, dancing with Mom, or getting excited to hear a story at circle time, everyone can learn and grow each day! We want to connect to our community and to learn and grow together.

Thank you for reading! Please come down and join us, we still have room for lots of Caregivers and their children! We also are in need of volunteers for the program!
For more information or to RSVP call the Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA 563-556-3371 and ask for Jaclyn Sharp.
