Brooklyn is for walking! All our pick up locations are a quick trot from PLAY Kids. Educators and PLAY staff meet and escort student by foot to PLAY each afternoon. As with all we do - we PLAY it safe. Walking together as a group is an excellent opportunity to reinforce street safety skills such as paying attention, being mindful of other pedestrians, patiently waiting for others, and vigilant crosswalk crossing.




What about the weather? Rain, snow, sleet, and temperature extremes - how does that affect pickups and outside PLAY?


Weather can’t dampen our PLAY day! However, it is essential that parents properly prepare students for weather conditions and seasonal changes. Staff will do all they can to make sure the trip is pleasant. However, we do ask parents to prepare their child’s clothing and gear (umbrella, footwear, etc) in coordination with the daily forecast. Outdoor playtime is reserved for warmer, drier days. Other afternoons we laugh and sing indoors, regardless of the precipitation or troubling thermostat readings.

Refund conditions are based upon enrollment, not attendance. Refunds or a proration cannot be granted for absences due to illness or vacation. Refunds will be considered in the case of overpayments or fees paid after the cancellation notice (please allow two weeks). There will be no refund in the event that your child is suspended or discharged from the program. 50% of refund is returned to original form of payment, remaining percentage is issued in the form of PLAY Kids credit.

Unforeseen mid-semester removal or extended absence:  My child needs to pause or end their participation in the program - please assist!

Teacher/Parent Communication

How can I contact my child’s teacher? Will I receive updates from teaching staff?


You can contact any teacher, administrative or executive staff by calling or emailing the school. Education and enrichment educators do send periodic updates via email to families. Also, the school as a whole also sends news and noteworthy e-Newsletters. Parents are welcome to reach out independently as well - whatever the issue, ask, or concern we are open.




How is feedback offered? Shared or heard? End of semester check-ins?


Those who seek to offer feedback and updates on and for specific reasons not addressed in general communication are invited to call or email the school, and/or arrive early for possible short discussion with staff. For longer conversations, calling or emailing to set a focused time is optimal. We treasure your input.




What will my child learn at PLAY Kids?


Two answers here:

  1. Fitness, Dance, Robotics, Music, Visual Art and French
  2. Life skills like mindfulness, cooperation, listening, self-awareness, sharing and compromise, kindness, communication, community conscious and infinitely more.
PLAY Kids staff and leadership hold a long, successful track record for quality enrichment focused, academically enhancing education and classes, as well as teaming with parents and families to raise generations of warm, confident, happy kids.

Test-prep box checking is NOT what we do: we enhance, support, and build creative thinkers, stellar students, and well rounded JR global citizens.




Is homework time factored into the daily schedule?


Ah homework - that “laundry of the school day” a necessary, effective weekly “chore” that too often receives a bad rep. Never fear - PLAY’s monitored homework time for older children reframes independent style and reduces the tired late night stress of combing through handouts at the dinner table. After snacks and enrichment classes - students in the afterschool enrichment program can commit to quiet school work before returning to the PLAY space.
Assistance with French devoirs (aka Homework)? Just say “s'il vous plaît”! Francophone help is in the HOUSE!




How is discipline addressed?


Each and every member of our PLAY Kids community is equally responsible for upholding PLAY standards of a safe, respectful, and welcoming environment. Though there are rules and a daily schedule at our school - enforcement is less a focus then a commitment to uphold and participate in a flow of the day and positive peer interaction. PLAY teaches students in a wide variety of enrichment offerings - dance, robotics, fitness, literature, drama, and more - as well as socially conscious life skills such as kindness, listening, and cooperation. In the event that there is a cause for an occurrence or pattern to be addressed - PLAY staff shall do so in a manner that mirrors the inclusive and communicative atmosphere we teach our students. Parents are invited to participate in the cohesion of our school. Each of us learning, growing, and improving together.
