Early learning Classroom at Campbell Park Resource Center


High quality early learning experiences lead to long-term school success. One of the goals of Campbell Park Network for Early Learning is to engage parents, caregivers and children (Birth to 5 years old) in meaningful learn and play opportunities. The Learn & Play Sessions are designed to support parents/caregivers to play and interact with children in developmentally appropriate ways to encourage brain development and assist school readiness. Sessions are held at United Way Suncoast's Campbell Park Resource Center in the rear of John Hopkins Middle School's campus in St. Petersburg.

  • Assisting with the session set-up and break down.
  • Sanitizing materials and equipment.
  • Assisting families with sign-in procedures.
  • Capturing photos during the sessions.
  • Helping to redirect children and families during the sessions.
  • Helping to facilitate the flow of the sessions.
  • Managing music and supporting activities.
  • Participating in a briefing before and debriefing after sessions.
