The Practice of Play

The Practice of play is a play class that takes inspiration from the wide world outside to cultivate curiosity, imagination, and exploration.  It introduces mindfulness to even the youngest of beings. 

The class begins and ends in a seated circle, practicing mindful exercises together that emphasize the importance of taking care of our mind and body.  Mindfulness helps manage our self-regulation, builds our emotional vocabulary, raises self-awareness, and grows the connection we have with ourselves and others around us.  

The in-between is an opportunity to freely explore natural artifacts found outside; as well as, recycled and common materials that children often see in their everyday experiences inside.

Toddlers will be able to practice mindfulness, but caregivers are welcome to take a breather too.  Speaking of thoughtful interventions...we kindly ask caregivers to put their phones on “do not disturb,” or whatever they can do to be as present at the moment as possible.
