Prevea Health

Prevea Read and Play

Prevea Pediatrics hosts a monthly series with free, interactive story time and activities at Bay Park Square Mall, called Prevea Read and Play. Join us on the second Friday of each month at the Prevea Children's Play Area (located in the Shopko Wing). 

At Prevea Read and Play, we start the morning with interactive story time with a Prevea Pediatrician and Child Life specialists, followed by fun activities such as dressing up like a doctor, singing songs and more!

Prevea Read and Play is free to attend. 

Prevea Read and Play is an extension of Reach Out and Read, a nationwide effort now offered at Prevea Pediatrics to provide books and literacy guidance with age-appropriate tips to families at infant and toddler checkups. Doctors and nurses speak with parents about the importance of talking and singing to babies from birth and reading aloud to older infants and toddlers every day.

December's Prevea Read and Play is on Wednesday, Dec. 12!

Story time with Mrs. Claus
Families are invited to join Mrs. Claus at the Prevea Children's Play Area in the Shopko Wing at 9:30 a.m. for stories, a meet and greet and pictures with Mrs Claus (parents take the pictures).

Before settling in with Mrs. Claus in the Children’s Play Area, Prevea Health will lead the kids on a polar bear hunt through the candy cane forests of the North Pole! Guaranteed to get kids’ imaginations going, the interactive activity will also help get the wiggles out of their little bodies so they can enjoy quality time with Mrs. Claus. 

After story time and pictures, the fun will continue with hand-made holiday inspired crafts and playtime.

​Join us the second Friday of the month at 9:30 a.m. at the Prevea Children's Play Area (located in the Shopko wing)
