Previous Dates



Please note: The Get Together will not meet on the following Monday afternoons: April 22; May 20 and May 27.

The Get Together

The Get Together is a group for parents, grandparents, caregivers and children ages newborn until the 5th birthday. The Get Together offers the following opportunities to families with young children:

  • Meet others with young children 
  • Get away from feeling “cooped up” and “isolated” 
  • Share experiences, ideas, and concerns with others and staff whose skills are in family and child development 
  • Discuss developmental issues and watch them unfold as children play

A fee of $25 per family per visit is charged. A fee adjustment is available according to family size and income. All attendees are required to complete the initial paperwork before attending the group. We are able to accommodate 20 people in our Get Together group. Phone ahead to reserve a space for your family: 773.765.3100. If you arrive without a reserved space and the group is full, you will be invited to return on another day. You are welcome to phone in your reservation beginning Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. the week before you wish to attend. Please reserve space for only your family.

The Get Together is designed for families and children up until their 5th birthday. Our space meets the developmental needs of children 5 years of age and under. The Get Together is designed for families, so please bring your child, grandchild, or the child for whom you are caring. On rare occasions, the Get Together may be observed for educational and training purposes. To respect the privacy of our families, please reserve your photo taking to outside the Get Together space.

While we know that many families have cell phones, we encourage you to turn them off during The Get Together. Our program is designed for caregivers to be available to their children and enjoy their time together.

We look forward to welcoming you. As always, if we are able to be of assistance to you and your family, please let us know.

To register or for any questions, please contact Mollie Reed, M.Ed at 773.765.3100.
