For Parents

Our Programs

We provide evening programs, approximately 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.; each site may vary.

Playtime Baby (6 months-2 years) and Big Kids (3-7 years) 
Our playrooms offer colorful play spaces stocked with toys, books, and play costumes, and guided-play activities are led by volunteers.

Preteen (8-12 years)
Playtime’s preteen programs support the unique developmental needs of youth, promoting their active living, wellness, and empowerment. Volunteers organize activities and serve as mentors and advocates.

Field Trips 

Monthly field trips allow all youth to experience their city in a whole new way, broadening their world view, building contextual knowledge, and fostering curiosity beyond their immediate environment. Past trips include:

  • Museums (Smithsonian, Wegmans Wonderplace)
  • Amusement parks 
  • National Arboretum
  • Local colleges and universities
  • Baseball games
