Playful Learning Playgroup

Come join the fun! This Playful Learning Playgroup provides a fun, meaningful and relevant playful learning experience for young children. We provide materials and activities that lay the foundation for S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) learning. Many of our materials are natural and made from re-purposed/recycled items. Our open ended activities stimulate learning, critical thinking and problem solving. They will enjoy construction, sensory experience, dramatic play, physics and more!

Sensory/Science class

This sensory and science class will thrill your young children. They get to explore a variety of materials with their senses. They will explore slimy things, ooey gooey things, wet and dry things, rough and smooth things and more! They will experience chemistry and physics as they play and explore the natural materials provided. Things will go fizzle and pop, things will go fast and slow, things will roll and fly! Children will learn concepts such as absorption, displacement, measurement, cause and effect, sensory and tactile awareness, solid, liquid, suspension, drainage, conservation, volume, mass, saturation, estimation, and the learning goes on and on.

Jedi Training class

This Jedi Training class mixes reality and fantasy, mindfulness and meditation, and seriousness and fun! Your little padawans will learn the skills necessary for a Jedi. They will learn to focus, and clear their minds. To concentrate and “feel the Force”. They will practice self-regulation and emotional regulation skills. They will learn how to respond, not to react. They will learn basic lightsaber skills, and gain control and mastery over their bodies. They will also construct their own lightsaber! This class teaches mindfulness skills and meditation, Arts and crafts as we construct our “lightsabers” from everyday house hold objects, and self discipline as we practice with our safe, soft, pool noodle “lightsabers”. This class is taught by “Jedi Master” Drew, with help from Master Yoda.
