Born 2 Learn is a multi-faceted public engagement campaign that helps parents, caregivers and the business community create early learning opportunities that are accessible to all families. As part of a collaborative effort to promote learning through playing and doing, and increase awareness of the valuable role parents have as their child's first teacher, we have designed fun, age-appropriate and FREE activities for families with young children in Downtown Springfield.
To get started on the Downtown Family Learning Circuit, simply download the map and brochure HERE. In order to complete all 20 fun, age-appropriate, early brain development activities, plan to stop by each of the participating businesses:
Creamery Art Center
Springfield Little Theater
Jordan Valley Health Center
Queen City Cycles
Discovery Center of Springfield
Jordan Valley Park
CU Bus Transfer Station
Metro Credit Union
Park Central Library
Look for the Born 2 Learn activity guides in the windows of downtown businesses. Each location features an activity for toddlers (newborn to age 3) and preschoolers (ages 3-6).
