I love the staff, the space, the classes - and more to the point, so does my daughter. I especially appreciate the playgroups, the facilitator Amanda is so knowledgable and supportive.

Family life these days means being on the go and trying to do it all without enough time or enough support. Remember that you are not alone.  

Recess’ playgroups were created as a way to connect and get support in one fell swoop.


Circle of Babies (0-12 mo)

Weekly playgroups in our front studio space!

Join Infant Mental Health specialist (and mommy), Allie, for a weekly playgroup.  In these hour long groups, new mamas and papas are invited to connect with other parents and collaborate to work through questions and struggles. Alongside your child, you will learn activities appropriate for the various ages and stages, have access to a curated selection of developmentally appropriate toys, and learn songs/games to use with your baby well beyond your time at Recess.  Guest speakers relevant to your baby's needs will drop by with specialized areas of focus like sleeping, eating, and self-care. Build new resources to help support your little one's growth!

Groups Start 2/3/17.  

6-12 months: Fridays @ 12 pm

0-6 months: Fridays @ 1:30pm

Come every week (and save), or pop in when you can.    

Playgroups in the Playspace

Moderated Playgroups

Fridays - 3:30-6pm (ages 0-4 years). Amanda Hyer, child development guru, builds relationships with parents helping them learn to trust themselves and their children’s innate and learned abilities so the whole family develops a deep connection based on observation, collaboration and respect.  Bring your questions, challenges and successes and we will help brainstorm solutions that work for your family.

Playgroups occur in our Recess playspace and are very informal- stay as long as you'd like or pop in and out as your little one explores the playspace.

Working Parents Playgroup  

One Saturday a month - 10-12.  Being a working parent has unique challenges.  Amanda will be available to brainstorm solutions to some of your challenges.  

This informal playgroup will be available to any age child.  We will have a general topic each week, but the questions you bring take priority!

See calendar of events for this month's date.
