Materials Playgroup - Ages 1.5 - 4 years
At UpCycle's Materials Playgroup, children and their caregivers build, experiment and play with open-ended, repurposed objects and art materials. The best part is that kids can make the mess at our place instead of yours!
The activities are carefully designed to promote discovery and the development of new skills. In our supportive environment, teachers guide children’s natural curiosity to encourage sustained attention and focus. Together parents and teachers participate with the children to nurture persistence and creativity.
We may have room for daily drop-ins ! Please e-mail to confirm space is available and register at:
