What: An AFK Educator will select a location on the site that is conducive to group exploration and play. We encourage parents to be observers more than playmates, and bear witness to what your child may be capable of without direct intervention or instruction! Our Educator will help the children set boundaries for group expectations, lead an opening circle, a break for snack, and a closing circle. The Educator will also be available to discuss with parents ideas for effectively encouraging independent play, nature exploration, and social-emotional development at home.
Who: AFK Playgroup is offered with a spirit of inclusivity and accessibility. The Playgroup is for children age 2-7 and their caregivers. Siblings under age 2 may attend for free.
When: AFK Playgroup is held every Wednesday 9:30-12:00 from September-April.
How: Pre-register online or just show up ready to pay with cash or PayPal. Dress your child in pants and closed-toed shoes and bring water & a snack. If it's cold, dressing them in multiple thin layers is helpful so you can remove mid-layers as they warm up. An extra pair or two of socks can be used for feet or hands. If your child's shoes are too snug, it can make their feet feel cold, so size up if possible!
