One more visit to Millers Pond

Tomorrow at 9:30 will be our last Play & Learn of 2015! If you haven't had a chance to join us under the pavilion at Millers Pond, here are a few reasons you might want to make the trip:

  1. Sunny and cool weather in the forecast. Wearing a light jacket or sweater would be wise.
  2. Ducks! When you and your child aren't busy with the play dough, blocks or other activities, the ducks provide plenty of opportunities for observation. But, please, don't feed them. This article from Audubon explains why.
  3. Fun early literacy interactions: We'll have books and activities as usual for you and your child to enjoy together while building pre-reading skills. Plus, you might make some new friends.
If you aren't able to go to Millers Pond tomorrow, please consider joining us at the Woodlawn Community Room, adjacent to Woodlawn Gym, beginning January 21, 2016.

Rain in the forecast?

According to the National Weather Service, there may be thunderstorms during this Thursday's Play & Learn at Millers Pond. Thanks to the large pavilion at Millers Pond, we can have Play & Learn even in the rain! The program will be cancelled only if there is flooding in the area or other hazardous conditions.

See you Thursday!

Fishing and More at Millers Pond

On Thursday, October 15 at 9:30AM Little Read Wagon will begin a new Play & Learn series at Millers Pond Park. We'll continue to bring fun early litearcy activities to Millers Pond every Thursday through November 19. This park on the southwest side of San Antonio has a big pavilion so we can have our programs rain or shine. The park also has a lovely lake with a one-mile trail if you'd like to go for a stroll, and a playscape for preschoolers and daring toddlers. Certainly we'll have some pretend fishing as an activity! 

If you would like to introduce your children to real fishing, Millers Pond is one of two Neighborhood Fishin' locations in San Antonio. Visit this page for more information about fishing regulations: Please note that children under 17 fish for free, but adults must have a freshwater license.
