At Kid Matters we know that you want your kids to be successful on the playground and interacting with their peers. Sunshine Circles can help! We are excited to bring play based social skills groups to Kid Matters. 

The problem is that it can be hard to manage children’s behavior throughout the day in a variety of settings which makes you feel worried about your child’s ability to develop relationships. 

We believe that the best way to excel is to practice these skills with a peer group.  We understand that managing playground disagreements can be hard, which is why we use interactive play groups to help children experience the joy of healthy peer relationships. 

Here’s how we do it: 

STEP 1. Register your child today for an 8-week social skills group, meeting Tuesday from 10:30 – 11:15 at Kid Matters’ annex beginning January 14th. 

STEP 2.  Receive a phone call from one of our group facilitators to gather preliminary information. 

STEP 3.  Bring in your child and allow them to develop their social skills with peers. 

We can help you stop worrying about playground scuffles and instead watch your child be a leader among their friends.
