Playgroup Calendar

Kent ISD's Bright Beginnings Early Childhood Program is updating our playgroup calendar. Beginning February 2017, the playgroup calendar will be in a list order rather than a typical calendar format. You can also view the calendar by visiting our facebook page.

Bright Beginnings Playgroup Calendar


Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a parent education and family support program that begins prenatally and extends through kindergarten entry. Parents as Teachers believes that all parents are their children's best first teachers.        

You may notice on the calendar that some playgroups require registration and others do not. Each Parent Educator has different space within the school district and various materials that are needed for every playgroup. In order to maintain safety and quality of each playgroup, the Parent Educator may have to close registration after a certain number of famiiles have registered. If you are interested in participating, please look for another playgroup that may meet your needs.

 Cancellation Policy
If the local school district in which the Bright Beginnings playgroup is being held cancels school, then the playgrup is also cancelled. Typically, a playgroup that is cancelled due to weather will not be rescheduled. School delays may affect playgroup scheduling, please contact your Parent Educator for information.
