Grandma's Garden Playschool!

Introducing “Grandma’s Garden Playschool” (formerly know as “Just Us Kids”)

We are excited to be improving & expanding our programming with the addition of our Playschool!! We hope you will be, too!

Playschool  takes place in space we have acquired on the floor below the playgroup space

The play sessions loosely follow the philosophy & activities of the Waldorf school of thought while integrating the familiar routine of playgroup with free play, circle time & snack.


This link will give you an idea of the direction we are taking.
