Welcome!  We are so happy that you are interested in I to I!

Who We Are

Infancy to Independence (I to I) is a cooperatively run playgroup for children ages 0-4 and their caregivers.

What We Do

I to I’s weekly meetings include periods of free play, simple projects, circle/music time, snack time and discussion groups. Outside of these weekly gatherings, there are two moms' nights out per semester and two field trips organized for the kids and parents. 

When We Meet

Playgroups meet from 9:00-11:30 Tuesday or Wednesday mornings for 16 weeks each semester.

Where We Meet

We are located at 435 Central St. in Acton, MA. We rent space in St. Matthew's church, but our group has no religious affiliation. 

Our History

I to I was founded in 1975 in New Orleans by Joan Spivey, a parent interested in reaching out to other parents of young children. Dottie Hilbert brought the program to Stow in 1986. In the spring of 1987, Stow became legally incorporated as a branch of I to I, Inc. In January 1989, I to I appointed a board of directors to oversee all business matters. In the fall of 2001, I to I relocated from the First Parish Church in Stow to St. Matthew's Church in Acton. There is another branch of the program located in Waltham, MA.
