Division Of Early Childhood And Youth Programming At Cove Community Center
The Division of Youth and Early Childhood have some ways to help and support families in Lakewood.
* Family Room
We could not be happier with our beautiful new Lakewood Family Room at Cove Community Center. This large and inviting space is filled with all kinds of toys and activities sure to entertain your young child. We are pleased to announce our fall schedule which includes evening hours, after school drop ins, new parent support (including lactation help) for those with babies under one, a special time just for the under three crowd, our longstanding Learn Thru Play program, and a new PreK lunch bunch group on Fridays. In addition, we will have special events including Miss Emily's Storytime, family movie nights, parent education groups, and parent advocacy opportunities. If you have a special skill or talent you would like to bring to the center, please reach out to discuss. Our fall schedule begins September 6.
