*Please note that the ages/grades listed below are approximations. Group placement will always be determined by age appropriateness as well as ability.
PreK – Kindergarten / 10:10 – 11 am & 11:15am-12:15pm: Little ones will improve social interaction and communication as they engage in sensory exploration, arts and crafts, fine and gross motor play, simple games, pretend play, and more!
1st – 3rd Grade / 9-10 am & 9 – 10:30am: Early elementary kids will continue to expand social interaction and communication as they engage in sensory exploration, arts and crafts, fine and gross motor play, competitive games, and more!
Third – Fifth Grade / 10:45am – 12:15pm (boys and girls): In the elementary grades, kids need to know how to play and talk with other children in many different contexts, including on the playground, in the lunchroom, on a play-date, and at home. Facilitated play is one of the best ways to help them learn to do this! Groups may go on some outings, such as to a local restaurant, festival, etc.
Middle School / 10:45am – 12:15 pm (girls only), 12:30 – 2 pm (boys only): In the upper elementary grades and middle school, play becomes more sophisticated and centers around favorite interests. Though one of the goals of this group will be expanding interests, favorite interests will be used for motivation during various activities, including active games (think Pokemon Tag), board games, sports, and playground games. We will also discuss “pop culture” topics such as current books, movies, music, etc. Groups may go on some outings, such as to a local restaurant, festival, etc.
