Since children learn best from active exploration of their environment, play is necessary for building a healthy foundation of a child’s development. As parents, you already use daily attuned interactions and play to teach your children about how the world operates. This allows them to practice such skills as problem solving, logical thinking (cause and effect), and relationship building with you. Similarly, children’s interactions with their peers gives them opportunities to practice and master the skills that they have already developed from playing with you. They are constantly learning about emotions, empathy, turn taking, and sharing, all of which are the basic building blocks of robust socio-emotional development.
Our playgroups span over the course of eight weeks and each week’s session is an hour and a half long. We offer two playgroups according to age ranges and they are open to early learners of all abilities and caregivers of all degrees of playfulness. Siblings, grandparents, and other play lovers are welcome. The more, the merrier.
This social group is geared for children ages 5-8 and meets every Wednesday and Friday from 4:30 – 6:30pm. Join this fun crew to work on a variety of skills amongst friends: from conversations, to turn taking, playing games together, sportsmanship, thematic play, and gross motor play, and much more!
This group can be billed through insurance for eligible children or is $25 per hour Self pay rate for non insurance eligible children.
1x/ week = $200 per month

Our weekly Movement group is for school age children. This will be a safe space for children to explore movement while participating in a social and engaging environment. It is intended to supplement their current therapy, physical education, or to simply add additional movement into an otherwise sedentary day.
Get moving with Alex Meeske, our pediatric physical therapist and fitness expert, as she moves and grooves with the kids every Thursday from 4-4:45pm. This class is great for children ages 4-8 years old who need a little experience, motivation and a fun way to get some extra challenges!
Join our social group on Friday evenings for a fun time while working on social skills and peer and sibling interactions!
