This playtime is a mixed age group that welcomes infants, pre-school kids, and young homeschoolers to play together. We also strongly encourage adults in the room to “build their village”.

Any Weather Walks – An hour of walking at mid-day is a great way to get some light and warmth in winter. We enjoy exploring the paths along Longfellow Creek and in Camp Long. The duck pond and the climbing rock are both favorite destinations. Or, sometimes we mix things up and head up the stairs to Puget Ridge Playground instead. The walk can easily be adjusted to match the day’s walkers, and we have fun umbrellas to loan out in case of rain. Any Weather Walks Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 11:30-12:30

Quiet Hours – A few hours every week will be reserved for quiet. Writing, reading, drawing, and quiet handwork are all welcome. There is wifi for computer work if a space for that is needed. This time is reserved for adults and older children who thrive on quiet. Tea, cocoa, or cider will be provided. Quiet Hours Tuesday and Friday 3-5pm and Thursday 6-7:30pm

Simplicity Circles – We will meet once a week to support one another in choosing simplicity in our lives in everything from our inboxes to our wardrobes to our holidays. Priorities will be connecting and sharing resources and stories. Additionally, we will meet every other week to talk about simplicity parenting. We’ll share our experiences and consider together that the answer might be to do less. Babes in arms are welcome in both circles, and handwork is, too!
