These Play Club classes were founded upon children’s intrinsic desire to play. Capitalizing on this, we provide open-ended activities such as art, sensory, imaginative, and movement activities that encourage children to become immersed in play and engage with the materials, environments, and their peers. By supporting the whole child, we hope to establish a fervent, lifelong curiosity for critical thinking, problem solving, and all other avenues of learning and development! Older Play Club is extended by thirty minutes, providing extra time for your child to bring a small packed lunch from home. Following free-play, clean-up time, and lunch is the piece de resistance: time to explore and play in MPS’s Outdoor Classroom! With many Gross Motor opportunities – climbing our bird’s nest, building with big-body building blocks, etc. – as well as nature-entwined Fine Motor tasks – digging, scooping, and pouring sand and dirt – the Outdoor Classroom offers something for everyone; you won’t want to miss this!
