Kids@Play Free Family Drop-Ins

Share This Story

As the flowers bloom and the days grow warmer, the Kids@Play program emerges as a beacon of joy for families. In Spring 2024, this beloved community initiative offers a series of free drop-in activities that cater to children aged 0-6 years. It’s a place where creativity blossoms through active play, crafts, songs, and games, all shared with parents or caregivers by their side. Registration is not on the agenda—families are welcomed to join the fun spontaneously.

Open Doors to Playful Learning

Kids@Play stands as a testament to the importance of play in early childhood development. The program’s doors are open to all, inviting families to partake in the festivities without the need for prior registration. However, they advocate for the health and well-being of all participants, urging those feeling under the weather to rest at home and return when they’re in good health.
