Introducing “Grandma’s Garden Playschool” , a morning drop off session from 9am-12pm.
Playschool is designed to help children take that 1st step into group socialization on their own. For those who have been coming to Playgroup, making this transition in a space with which they already have connection & with adults & children with whom they are already familiar, often times makes this transition easier!
Playschool takes place in space we have acquired on the floor below the playgroup space
The play sessions are loosely structured integrating the familiar routine of playgroup with free play, circle time & snack while adding more reading & theme based activities!
COMING IN SEPT, Grandma's Garden will also have a full day option for children 2 1/2 years & up!
Check our programs page for more info!
The Playgroup Space is a perfect setting for a child's birthday party!!
If you're looking for an affordable, space to create your own event, we're it!
Make sure to reserve your date ASAP to get the date you want!
