Playgroup is available to all children enrolled in the Blue Valley Parents as Teachers program. Visit their website to enroll. It’s a wonderful program with weekend activities, evening classes, development screenings, and more. Consider joining the PTA as well for additional activities.

  • The room’s theme (farm, things that go, colors, etc.) changes monthly. Each theme comes with fresh new activities.
  • The sensory table is always a hot spot.
  • Plenty of climbing equipment is available for gross motor skills.
  • Enjoy tons of pretend play including a kitchen, tools, dress up clothes, and doctor equipment, to name a few.
  • Kids love the teacher-led song and story time during the last 10-15 minutes each session.

Tot Spot Tip

  • Upon arrival, sign in and make a name tag for you and your child. Wait in the lobby, and a teacher will ring a bell to begin playgroup. Follow the others up the stairs or elevator to the playroom on the second floor. If you’re late, no big deal. The receptionist will guide you.
  • The Parents As Teachers educators are professional and wonderful. Feel free to ask questions. They’re trained to help with issues we all face: sleep, food, discipline, development, and so on.
  • We sometimes check out a backpack of themed books from their library. Ask a staff member to become part of the library system.
  • Be sure to enjoy the outdoor playground before or after playgroup. A small section is open to the public during the week, and the whole playground is open on weekends.
  • Due to limited space, we prefer to go stroller-less to this event. They ask that you leave carseats outside the playroom door and opt for a baby carrier instead. Carriers are available if you need one.
  • Snacks for purchase in the lobby.
