Playgroups Offered

Thom Westfield Infant Toddler Services offers toddler groups for children 18-36 months old. Our staff is trained in techniques to maximize your child’s socialization and developmental skills and we always maintain a 3:1 staff/child ratio. Our groups include children receiving early intervention services as well as their typically developing community peers when space is available. There is also a nominal fee to cover snack and art materials ($10 for 3 months).

If you are interested in your child attending one of our playgroups or have questions about which playgroup might be the best match for your child please contact us Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm at (413) 568-3942 or send us an email.
