Play and Learn, offered at multiple sites, is a

Wisconsin and United Way of Dane County.
Play and Learn is a fun and engaging free-of-charge program offered by the Madison
Metropolitan School District for children ages birth to 3+ and their caregivers, who reside in
the Madison School District. The Play and Learn sessions provide a learning environment
for families who may not have access to similar opportunities and who are not currently
participating in similar programs. Children learn early math, literacy, and social skills
through play, and caregivers learn about child development, the importance of play, and
parenting skills.
