The group is a casual get-together to allow children to play and their caregivers to socialize.
Each week, different activities are planned and stories and a snack are offered. Activities are geared for children up to 5 years old, but older kids and home school students are also welcome.
Twice a month, Andrea Newby, family living educator from Iron County University of Wisconsin-Extension, attends to teach preschool and kindergarten readiness activities.
The group originated when Mercer parent Martha Kiedrowski saw a need for parents, grandparents, baby sitters and other caregivers to bring young people together. It began meeting in February 2013.
The play group meets year-round and all are welcome.
