Early Learning & Enrichment#

Age: 6 years & younger

Recognizing that play is an important part of children’s learning and development, our early learning, and enrichment programs offer play-based learning classes that expose children to new experiences that build confidence and develop cognitive, communication, and social skills. These classes are designed with a selection of single interest, adult with child classes, and playgroup classes designed to prepare children for preschool.

It is recommended that children enrolled in classes without an accompanying, responsible adult are fully toilet trained. Children not yet toilet trained are welcome to attend classes, however, an adult must be available to attend to toileting needs. City of Fort Collins Recreation staff are not permitted to change diapers.

Many classes include a small snack and/or cooking-type activities. Please denote any dietary restrictions when registering and inform class instructors on the first day of class.
