Star Garden playgroup is a parent/caregiver & child playgroup designed for children ages 7 months to 18 months and 16 to 18 months to 3.5 years of age. Siblings under 6 months are welcome at no additional cost.

In our hearts, we believe that imagination is practical and childhood should be a nearly-magical experience.

Star Garden playgroup creates a bridge between home life and the beginning of a social setting, that later becomes the school setting. Each week, different themes focus on the foundations of movement development, the importance of rhythm, working with the senses, and building healthy habits. Parents/Caregivers can experience the rhythm and techniques of Blackland Prairie Conservatory & Atelier’s early childhood education, ask questions, and learn more through suggested readings and take-home activities.

If you have children in each age group, please ask us about availability for your younger children to join our Playgroup II sessions with you and your older children.

Our program provides families an opportunity to celebrate the seasons through a BPCA inspired early childhood program that includes:

Songs • Nourishment for the 12 Senses • Games • Love and Warmth • Artistic Experience • Joy, Humor & Happiness • Nature Walks • Rhymes • Circle Time • Free, Imaginative Play • Outdoor Play • Fingerplays

Our Star Garden Playgroup meets on Wednesdays and Thursdays in eight-week sessions.

Enrollment begins July 3, 2019.
