Playgroup Tips & Reminders

Play groups are for any child who lives in Clinton County ages 0-5.  Planned activities are developmentally and age appropriate.  All children must be accompanied by an adult.

All play groups are held at the Clinton County RESA Education Center, 4179 S. US 27, St. Johns.  Please check our website calendar for community events and play group schedule.

Things to remember:

  • Dress in play clothes-we can get messy!
  • Children learn through play and you are their first and best teacher. So be ready to play and get messy together!
  • Please do not bring a sick child or adult (Thank You!)
  • We would like to discourage the use of cell phones during group.  If you need to take a call, we understand, but please try to reserve this time for your children.
  • If Clinton County RESA is closed for the holidays, weather or school days off, we will not be having playgroups.  Please call if in doubt.  Clinton County RESA (989)224-6831.
