Spring 2023

Morning groups for children 2-4  / After School & School Holiday groups for children &  3-8 years old.

Morning hours from 9am – 1pm / Extended hours from 1pm – 3pm

After School from 3pm-5:30pm / School Holidays from 9am – 2pm

March arrives. The air is still chilly and the trees bare. We’re so happy to be outside together to witness spring from day one!

We hear the birds chirp to one another, eager to welcome warmer days, while we dig for some treasures under the hardened ground. Squirrels emerge to make their nests, and bits of green appear on the branches. The sun beckons the turtles to come out of their shells to soak up its rays. We love spring!

We go to different parts of the park, singing cheerful songs while collecting sticks and stones, celebrating every single change we see. We tell stories, observe nature and build our own “home” – making little pots out of clay, food out of mud, stoves out of rocks and sticks, brooms out of branches to clean the leaves. We climb trees, run with our stick horses and use our imagination to create an environment in the park as if we were living there. We play! And there is nothing better than that.

Spring playgroup will run from March 6th- June 16th ; there is no playgroup on Memorial Day – Monday, May 29th.

Registration Info

1. Before anything, please read our guidelines and if anything is unclear or you have any questions related to the spring program, please contact us first.

2. When you’re ready to commit and know your dates, fill out the form; if you’re new, you have to pay a one-time registration fee of $ 50.

3. At the end of registration a credit card payment is required. If you’re signing up for the morning group a non-refundable deposit (25% of the tuition) is due. For all other groups the entire tuition is due.

4. As soon as we receive your registration (and deposit), we will send you a confirmation email as well as an invoice for the remaining tuition and a  clear payment schedule and payment terms.

While we understand that circumstances change in your life, or that you just simply changed your mind, we are holding the spot for you until spring and by doing so, very likely turning other people away.

Well, it depends when you cancel and which group you sign up for; please refer to the cancellation policy in the guidelines as well as the registration form.

We accept any major credit cards. The tuition installments (2-4 morning group) can be paid via credit card,  Venmo or Zelle.

Yes, we do. A discount of 15% of the sibling’s tuition is automatically calculated in the registration form and deducted from the total. The sibling’s tuition must be equal or less than the first child’s tuition of the discount to be activated.

The pricing quoted above is in correlation with the number of days chosen in the morning group. For example if you use the quote for  3 days per week in the morning, then quote for the extra hours is also 3 days per week.

Parents can choose up to the number of days they chose for the morning hours for the extra hours (i.e. 4 days per week for mornings but 1-4 of those days with extra hours).

Specific pricing can be found in the tuition calculator in the registration form.

We currently only offer after school on Mondays & Thursdays; if you are interested in Tuesdays and/or Wednesdays, please send us an email and if there are enough people, we may open another afternoon.

We currently offer school pickups from PS321 and PS39. In the registration form you will see the option of entering the name of another school. However,  we may not be able to do a pickup from there (because of distance, time and/or coordination with other pickups). If you proceed with the registration and we are not able to do a pickup from that school we will refund the pickup fee.

If a pickup from school is important to you and you want to make sure, just send us an email before registering.

No worries – just shoot us an email and we’ll be happy to answer your question and help you sort it out. 

FAQ’s

We meet inside the park near the 3rd Street entrance. Pickup will be at the same spot as drop off.

Yes! Rain or shine. That said we keep an eye on the weather –  if there is a thunderstorm forecast, or high winds we may have to cancel.

Jump in puddles! Generally the rain is not the issue, but the clothing the kids wear. If the kids have the proper gear, a rainy day can be a lot of fun. That said, there are days when the amount of rain and cold temperatures (and wind) make a day pretty miserable and we may have to cancel; as when there is a thunderstorm predicted or high winds.

We constantly keep an eye on the weather forecast and try to do our best to email you the evening before in case we have to cancel playgroup; but even with 5 weather apps a clear answer is not always possible the evening before, in which case we check the forecast again very early the morning of playgroup. If we need to cancel, we will send you a text.
