Kid’s Playgroups

Is your child ready for more playtime with peers?

My creative playgroups help toddlers discover the new and exciting world of peer relationships.  Through games, music, movement and dance, I support them to discover their world and each other.

What the children learn:

  • friendship
  • how to ask for what they want
  • helping each other
  • how to play together
  • what to do when they don’t agree

I support the children to play, care for themselves and learn how to be friends.  I help them recognize basic social needs, like closeness, safety, and playing together.  And perhaps most importantly, all of those lessons happen through play and having a good time together.

The children make art, dance, sing, play outside, invent games and eat together in a safe and nurturing environment.  I skillfully improvise with the children, sometimes following and sometimes leading their creative play.

When:  Playgroup meets from 9 am to 1 pm, Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.  You can sign up for 1 to 3 days.

Where: My home at 844 59th St., Oakland.  I have a great back yard that has a playhouse, a trampoline and plenty of space to play .  I have a small garden that the children help plant and maintain throughout the year.

Fees:  $165 for 3 days.  $60/day for 1 or 2 days.
