The first days and months of parenthood (not to mention the nine months leading up to it all) are a crazy trip. The highest highs and the lowest lows are balanced with the most incredible snuggles and hours on end of pure awe.
As you find your way through the early days getting to know your little one, we invite you to venture out when you're ready, start to build your new parent community, find folks you connect with, and take in a little support where you need it. We're thrilled to be able to some unique offerings to new mamas and papas (yes, papas are welcome here, too!).
- New Parent Groups (Fridays at Noon)
- Free Newborn Membership - Explore the Playspace (anytime!)
- Baby Play - Playspace Activity (Mondays at 1pm)
- Bring your questions to our Drop-in, Moderated Playgroup in the Playspace. (Fridays 3:30-6pm & one Saturday a month 10-12). Are teeth emerging? How do you engage your baby through play? What can you do to support development? Sleep??! Come on in anytime during these casual groups to get information, meet other parents, and ease into a space that has your needs in mind as well as your child's.
- Arrange meet ups with parent friends. Many of us in San Francisco don't have enough room to invite a playgroup over to our homes, and the finicky weather makes planning a day in the park a bit tricky...but Recess has plenty of space to host your next gathering. Anything from a casual, "Let's meet in the playspace around 2," to a "I'm organizing a handful of families to come together for a potluck." We have an incredible amount of space and have all the accouterments needed for infants, toddlers and preschoolers to stay happy. Most importantly, this kid space is also equipped with necessities for grown ups to feel comfortable (including, but not limited to, coffee!).
- Easing back into the working world? Check out our co-working space. We offer childcare for infants 3mo+. Members can also book appointments for drop-off childcare. This is great for the occasional break, doctor's appointment, pedicure, nap...whatever you need. Let us know if you'd like to get more info!
Is there something else you'd like to see at Recess? Please...don't hesitate to let us know!
