Family center

The Watertown Family Center, in addition to its regular weekly programming, has announced an upcoming workshop.

The center will present the workshop "There Is No Better App Than the Lap -- Play" on Tuesday, Feb. 27, from 6-7:30 p.m. Attendees will learn why setting aside technology and going "old school" while interacting with their children can benefit the child's speech, language, social and attention skills.

Participants will look at different board and card games to see how they can help a child's development. The workshop will be facilitated by Jann Fujimoto, a speech-language pathologist and owner of SpeechWorks in Oconomowoc.

Registration is necessary; call 920-261-2450 to register. Free child care is available.

The family center will hold drop-in playgroup Monday from 9-11 a.m. and open gym Thursday from 9-10:30 a.m. There will be no drop-in playgroup Friday, Feb. 16.

No registration is required for playgroup and open gym. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Call 920-261-2450 for more information.
