Parent & Child Playgroups


Our Summer Playgroup Begins on June 26th!

Come enjoy the summer with us in this morning playgroup for children from birth to six years old. Together, we will play in nature, share a snack of blueberry muffins, and take time to reflect on the rich experiences of parenting!

To meet the needs of busy families, this special summer playgroup is free of charge, with no registration required. Join us for one or every week. We hope to see you!

our programs

In our morning playgroups, parents and young children meet for friendship and play in a warm, nurturing setting. Each week, our seasonally inspired playgroups offer free-play indoors & in nature, crafts, songs, a nourishing snack, and time for parents to share their experiences and insights. Parent & Child playgroups meet year-round for children from birth to preschool with a parent or caregiver. Register below, or contact us if you'd like to drop in for a visit >

Please check back to see our fall 2019 offerings & schedule!

our playgroups

Parent & Infant Playgroup

Mondays, 9:30-10:30am
For infants from birth to 10 months
Fall Schedule is coming soon!

We welcome parents to this special time for focusing on mindful parenting and self-care. Together, we will explore songs and sensory activities that appeal to infants. As parents create new ways of connecting with their infant, they will find support, friendship, and conversation about their parenting experiences within our group.

Parent & Child Playgroups

Wednesdays, 9:00-11:00am
For children from birth to preschool
Fall Schedule is coming soon!

Join us each week for imaginative play, games and songs, and delicious snacks around a friendly table. Our morning playgroups offer parents and young children the opportunity to grow, laugh and learn together in a supported setting. As the weeks unfold, parents work together with their children on seasonal crafts to bring into their homes as they weave their own family traditions. While children strengthen their connections to their caregivers in this warm space, they also build trust and confidence in new friendships with each other.

Parent & Child--Walk in the Woods


Thursdays, 9:00-11:00am
For children from birth to preschool
Fall Schedule is coming soon!

Venture out with us in all seasons on a walk through the lovely woods of our Early Childhood campus. Together we will make discoveries and create opportunities for imaginative play in nature. Our playgroup offers parents the chance to build their connection with their child through active engagement in the natural world, while meeting other parents.  In the cold months, we will explore outdoor winter wonders together before heading inside to share a cozy snack.
