About Stay & Play

Stay & Play is designed for children and parents/caregivers to enjoy together. Babies to children 5 years are welcome. 

Our mornings are a gentle and supportive time for children to socialize and to experience being in the forest. They will include Circle Time with seasonal songs and finger plays, a nature craft and story plus lots of time for free play. Some days we will enjoy a simple place-centered science activity.  ​

This is a particularly lovely opportunity for children and/or parents who are not quite ready to be apart and want social time with other kids and adults. 

If there is interest, Taira (grandmother and Breakthrough Parenting coach) and Stephanie (mother of two) are happy to speak with you about parenting challenges and tools.  

9:00AM arrival seem too early? No worries. Arrival time is flexible.  

Taira Restar and Stephanie Ormsby are our facilitators.

Forest Stay & Play is a program of In Place (local non-profit) in collaboration with Emerald Heart Forest School. Scholarships available through In Place.
