First Friends

About the Program

First Friends is a municipally sponsored playgroup, run by volunteer parents, for children ages 1 - 5.

The children, as well as their parents, have the opportunity to meet new families and make new friends. The children participate in songs, crafts and other age appropriate activities as well as many special events throughout the year

Playgroups meet once weekly from September - May. Groups do not meet on Wednesdays, nor do they meet when the River Vale Public Schools are closed. Groups will begin to meet for the 2017-2018 school year starting the week of September 17, 2017.
