SMALL GROUP PLAY SESSIONS
Ever wanted more time at The Yard without all the crowds? Keen to play on site with just a few friends? This season we're excited to be piloting NEW private/small group adventure play sessions at our amazing play lot with Head Playworker and play enthusiast Yoni Kallai. Geared towards young people age 2-18 who can’t get enough of The Yard, sessions last between 45 minutes and 1 hour and 45 minutes and take place during weekdays in June, September and October, depending on availability.
JULY 7 - PARENTS AND ADULT ADVOCATES AT THE YARD
We are excited to launch a pilot discussion group for adults (not restricted to parents) with our head playworker, Yoni Kallai.
We will address issues such as providing freedom to children in their play and in their daily lives.
