Children are never too young!!
Our Playgroups provide a relaxed atmosphere where parents find support in each other while children can safely explore, play & socialize!
They are facilitated & lightly structured offering free play, circle time & snack.
Our families fund our playgroups through donations of $1-$5 per group. No need to register in advance!!
Bonus for sleep deprived adults......free coffee or tea!
Check our calendar for days & times.
“Grandma’s Garden Playschool” is a morning drop off session from 9am-12pm
for children 18 mos & up
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!
"Our Garden" is a 9-3 Playschool option for children 2 1/2 years & up!
Registration is now open for both
Check our programs page for more info & registration forms!
The Playgroup Space is a perfect setting for a child's birthday party!!
