Because play is essential for learning, joy, and emotional wellness.
play+ supported playgroups
Play+ curriculum is designed by our Developmental Specialists here at Family Matters using evidence based strategies to best support and grow your child's social and emotional skills. Classes are 1.5-2 hours long and your child will learn a wide range of skills through guided play and independent play with the support of our Developmental Specialist. Classes include handouts for parents to make connections between class and home.
play+ community groups
We've taken some of the activities that your children know and love and have put them together in a way that you can continue to use them with other families out in the community. Parents can sign up to host or attend a play group that will build onto what they are learning in Play+ while encouraging positive relationships.
Our play space is designed to fit every child's needs. We've taken inspiration from Reggio and Montessori play spaces and put them together in a way that encourages positive interaction with peers and imaginative play. This set up is proven to enhance learning and support your child's social and emotional needs. We have created a toybrary to allow you to check some of these toys out for yourself. We also provide a short workshop for those interested in mirroring this set up at home too.
For our families who lack transportation, find it difficult to get out the door, or just want the play group but in the comfort of their own home we offer play+ anywhere. Utilizing a web-based platform, you are able to virtually join us in our play sanctuary to listen to the story, songs, and will get a email detailing materials and activities so you can play along at home.
Community Play Groups
These play groups are picked and led by parents but developed by developmental specialist. This will allow you to take our classes out into the community to encourage connection and friendships beyond the classroom.
