“Playgroups days were always our best days, thanks to Friendly House Playgroup. It’s the perfect time frame, diversity of activities, amount of free play and just enough structure. It’s where we met all the families that we are still friends with today.” -Martha W.
Friendly House Playgroup provides a place for parents/guardians of very young children to meet and make friends. It is an opportunity for children and parents/guardians to explore a stimulating sensory environment and develop social and motor skills.
What We Do
Playgroup is a neighborhood service offered by Friendly House for young children ages birth to 3 years old and their parents or guardians. The program takes place in our Preschool classroom which is filled with educational materials, role-play and dress up areas, reading nooks, discovery tables, building toys and more! During each session there is a wide variety of activities available to children and their parents/guardians to participate in such as painting, water and sand play, circle time with songs and finger play, a nutritious snack and then play time in the gym with the crawl-through tunnels, trikes and other age-appropriate climbing/sliding structures. *On Mondays, playgroup is hosted by our Head Preschool Teacher and/or other preschool staff. On Fridays, playgroup is hosted by a volunteer parent. Come one or both days – we’d love to see you!
