Babies and young children learn through play. It is their source of information about the world. As part of the Rancho Cucamonga Library’s mission to foster life-long learning, we offer opportunities for young children to play while building skills for learning and literacy in all stages of life.
In the spring of 2010, the first Play and Learn Island® was introduced, providing a new and unique way to bring play and learning to the youngest members of our community. Play and Learn Island® units incorporate problem-solving, sorting, sharing, early literacy skills, design and testing, and collaboration. Their colorful design, scale and varied activities appeal to a range of ages, encouraging families to play and explore together, while they imagine, discover, create, and bring learning to life.
Play and Learn Island® units are stationed in the children’s rooms of both libraries. Join us at the library to dig, build, create, play and learn!
