Another goal is to have our members find friendship and camaraderie with each other. Family Circle Playgroup provides a unique opportunity to form life-long friendships for our members and their children.
Statement of Purpose
Our programming space provides two large classrooms, a gymnasium, and a stage and dining area for in-house events.
Classes are available Monday through Friday, September through June.
We offer classes for 12 month, 18 month, 2 year, 3 year and 4-5 year old children. Morning classes meet from approximately 9:15 am - 11:30 am, and afternoon classes meet from approximately 12:30pm - 2:45pm.
Classes are made up of no less than 4 enrolled children plus any tagalongs. Typically, classes consist of about 5-8 enrolled children plus tagalongs.
Classes are not predetermined. Rather, parents who fill out the registration form on the Enrollment Page indicate which days and times of the week that they are available for playgroup. FCP will collect registration forms and fees. Then, in August the Registrar will match up parents who have children of similar age AND the same availability. We will notify you of your class day and time once classes are formed.The parent stays on the premises at all times with their child. Tagalongs are welcome for an additional fee. Tagalongs are younger or older siblings to the enrolled child.
A sample class schedule is as follows:
- 9:15-9:30 Arrival/Free Play
- 9:30-9:50 Circle Time
- 9:50-10:10 Planned Craft
- 10:10-10:30 Exercise/Gym Time
- 10:30-10:50 Snack
- 10:50-11:10 Story Time/Activities
- 11:10-11:30 Goodbye Circle
In order to help members lead the best classes for their children, we've created a curriculum of suggested topics for each week. Each class will receive a calendar of themes that is perfectly designed for the developmental level of that class age. The curriculum includes varied topics such as:
- Life on a Farm
- Dr. Seuss Day
- Pirates and Princesses
- Making New Friends
- ....and so much more!
Registering for playgroup twice a week is good for children of any age. But it is great for children who will be 4 years old by October 1st, if you would like your child to warm up to a kindergarten schedule.
In addition to playgroups, FCP provides special activities such as class trips, in-house events, meetups, and parents’ night out for free or at a reduced group rate.
FCP is a non-sectarian organization and does not discriminate based on race, color, creed or physical limitation.
