A weekly drop-in play program that allows children to actively enjoy a wide variety of toys and games to enhance both large and small motor skills. Children can participate in music and movement, arts and crafts, and circle time, while developing social skills, independence and the confidence to explore new skills. 

While their children play, parents and caregivers have an opportunity to interact, finding friendship, support and advice. 

Play Central takes place Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the gym at Barnes Early Childhood Center, 20090 Morningside Drive, Grosse Pointe Woods. 

The cost is just $5 per family per visit.
