At Child’s Play NY we have an array of options to keep kids social, thriving and safe this fall! Please reach out if you need financial assistance to participate in our programming.

In-Person Programs

Outdoor Play Pod Classes

Our curriculum supports vital social-emotional well-being as kids experience playing in-person. Groups are capped at 5 students and games are socially-distant while still being engaging, physical and artistic.  

We work to support children through a range of experiences, prioritizing peer-connection, gross-motor release and empowering new skills. Play/work takes place outdoors.

Create your own Play Pod with a group of friends! Classes can be customized for children ages 3-17.

In addition to the rehearsals of the script, there is time for games and improvisation to bond the group and deepen their characters. They will be expected to do work outside of class to practice choreography, lyrics and lines. There is a final premiere to showcase and celebrate their experience.
