Learn & Play Tampa Bay

Learn & Play Tampa Bay has Neighborhood Play Squads* in your area every season! Your local Neighborhood Play Squad is a group of families who will be learning and playing together in weekly Learn & Play sessions over a 10-week period. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but modern parenting can be isolating. Our Neighborhood Play Squads are intentionally designed to help you form bonds with other families who are on a similar journey. By the end of the 10-week program, your Neighborhood Play Squad will feel like an extension of your “village.” 

LEARN & PLAY TAMPA BAY OFFERS

  • Weekly 60-minute play sessions
  • Songs, stories, and play in English & Spanish
  • Support from experienced bilingual Educators
  • Time to connect with your child through play
  • Social interactions with other parents

ENROLL TODAY

Here’s how to join your local Neighborhood Play Squad and earn a free yearlong membership to Glazer Children’s Museum:

1. Enroll in an upcoming 10-week period to join your local Neighborhood Play Squad at LearnPlayTampaBay.org

  • Choose the Neighborhood Play Squad that meets near you from the list below**
  • There is no cost to enroll or attend the sessions
  • By enrolling, you are committing to the 10-week program
  • Participants cannot enroll in more than one 10-week period or at more than one location in a single year
  • Enrollment is for one child and one adult who live within the same household. This program is designed for one-on-one play between caregiver and child, so if there is more than one child in the household, each must be enrolled separately and be accompanied by a separate adult.
  • Participating children must be between the ages of birth to 5 years old and reside in Hillsborough County

2. Attend the weekly 60-minute play sessions at your local CBFRC during the 10-week period along with fellow members of your Neighborhood Play Squad. 

These bilingual play sessions will teach you techniques to engage with your child and give you the confidence to guide them on their play journey as they grow and develop.

3. Take a simple evaluation at the end of the 10-week period to earn your free yearlong membership to Glazer Children’s Museum!

Toward the end of the 10 weeks, you will be asked to take an evaluation to help us measure our impact on the participants of this program. Once you have completed the 10-week program and your evaluation, you will receive a complimentary yearlong membership to Glazer Children’s Museum where you can apply what you and your child learned about play.
