What we're about

We are a community of educators, pastors, and moms that want to build friendships with other Palo Alto moms and little ones. Every Thursday from 10:00am-11:30pm we meet at First Christian Church in a free, safe, and fun indoor play space for infants - Pre-K kids. We have prepared learning activities, age-appropriate toys, and materials set up to spark open-ended play.

We are passionate about early-childhood development, parent-child play, and helping moms and babes in the Bay Area thrive.

Guiding Principals:
“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.” - Maria Montessori

“Play is the work of childhood.” ― Jean Piaget

What to Expect:
Though the classroom is primarily set up for child-directed play and purposeful exploration stations, there is a teacher in the classroom to help coach children and parents to develop in the following areas:

Literacy Development: book-handling behaviors, read-alouds, recognizing letters, asking questions about pictures in books, and sing-alongs.

Mathematical Development- geometry in the real world- shapes, sizes, measurements in cooking, over, under, comparisons, patterns, and counting.

Language Development- communicating with peers, retelling stories, modeling vocabulary, grammar, and listening skills.

Spiritual Development- recognizing that our children are fearfully and wonderfully made, and are on a journey to discover who God created them to be.

Science Exploration- observing, investigating, looking at changes and characteristics.

Physical Development- activities to promote balance, muscular strength, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills.

**Everyone under the age of 18 must have a guardian with them.
