The Marysville Great Start Family Center is joining others in Algonac, Capac and Port Huron with a Great Start Program. Each offers space for playgroups through the Great Parents Great Start program, as well as resources for families and providers. Free playgroups will be available to families at the Great Start Family Center every Thursday from 10 to 11 a.m. starting Feb. 2. Stacy Williams, Early On coordinator, will lead the playgroups. Playgroups are open to all families with children ages 0 to 5. They offer a range of engaging activities that work on social skills and promote early learning and development. Contact Director Riley Alley for more information about the centers. She may be reached at (810) 455-4397, email@example.com.
