Imaginative Parenting Series

Learn how to connect with your kids and promote their development through dramatic play.

Learn simple, imaginative play techniques with both an expert in play and a licensed clinical social worker and then put their new tools to immediate use in a 40-minute drama and creative play session with their child! Children participate in an enriching activity, and parents walk out ready to continue the learning, fun, and cooperation at home.

To sign up, call 805-473-7163 or visit slolibrary.evanced.info. Please sign up for all seven weeks when possible. (No class on 10/14/2019 & 11/11/2019) Imaginative Parenting Flyer Date List
