Play Groups

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood (Fred Rogers).

We provide a time and a place for you and your child to engage in play with peers. You will be able to meet other parents and learn new activities you can duplicate at home. A licensed and experienced teacher will guide you and your child through hands on learning activities in all areas of development.

A sample schedule may include:

9:00-9:30 Welcome, meet and greet, free play, and music and movement.

9:30-10:00 Circle time/story time, open-ended questioning, exploration of a topic.

10:00-10:45 Free play with selected activities provided at tables to provide stations with purposefully selected materials to offer an age-appropriate variety of opportunities. Materials would include fine-motor, creative art, math, science, literacy activities and even a station for a small healthy snack.

10:45-11:00 Clean up, Closing activity

Children ages 2-5 years are welcome to join the group with their parent(s).
