Come join the Kansas City Public Schools Parents as Teachers program for a time of interaction with your child and connection to other parents and caregivers from the community. There will be opportunities for play that support where your child is at developmentally as well as chances for interaction and friendship with other parents of young children. Parents as Teachers believes you are your child's first and most important teacher, so come ready to learn and play.
Join us for fun and games every 3rd Monday starting at 6 p.m. On Game Night, we break out our collection of board games, playing cards, and dominoes and let you and your family have at them. Connect 4, Jenga, checkers, and many more games offer gaming fun for the night. The games are set out for you to browse, and you’re welcome to play whichever one(s) you’d like, either with your friends and family or with other game lovers from the community. Occasionally, we’ll have a themed Game Night. Such nights will be noted on the schedule.
Join us in the beautifully acoustic Kirk Hall where Clint Ashlock, Artistic Director of the Kansas City Jazz Orchestra will host a listening party for the formative jazz album Moanin' by Art Blakey.
