The Play & Learn Place helps children develop the skills they need to become successful readers. Children and their caregivers can play with a rotating set of activities and toys which build language skills such as vocabulary, self-expression, and understanding. These skills help children make sense of printed words and give them the tools they need to become successful readers and lifelong learners. They also help a young child enter kindergarten with a love of books and a readiness to learn.
