What we're about

Unplug. Go outside. Play.

Welcome families! Won't you join us for some outdoor play? Each play date takes place at a park in or near Gaithersburg, and includes a fun and engaging activity for kids and parents alike. This is a great way to meet other families, learn your child's interests and passions, and enjoy some time in the fresh air.

The rules are few...Be respectful. Be present. Be yourself. There is no agenda. We'll be offering an optional activity, such as messy play, process art, a movement game, or nature exploration to get the creative juices flowing. Then the kids can take the lead and enjoy free play of their own devising.

Christine Force, PT, DPT is the founder of Play to Grow (https://www.playtogrowmd.com/) and director of TimberNook of Central Maryland (https://www.playtogrowmd.com/timbernook), and is hosting "Park Playdates" to encourages families to unplug and get outside! Christine also offers educational programs on development and outdoor play, and summer camp programs for children ages 2 - 11.
