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 north 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.
