Spring at Recess

I think we can all agree that being a parent is tough no matter how you slice it. It's sweet, and cuddly and rewarding...but it's also really trying at times. We're here to make it a little bit easier at Recess Collective.

Come hang out with us!

Member Benefit: Monthly Dance Party

Do you like to Jam?  Are you ready to party?  

Join award-winning family musician Charity Kahn for a highly interactive, joyful, playful and unique music class that will inspire your children (and you!) to sing, dance, stretch, breathe and imagine.  The JAMboodas Family Dance Party takes place one each month and is appropriate for all ages.    

Singer/songwriter Charity Kahn and her jammin’ band create soul and rock ‘n roll vibes authentic enough for any adult fan, but not at the expense of the young target audience. Catchy melodies and wonderfully imaginative, meant-to-be-heard lyrics aim straight for a child’s spirit, eager mind and dancing feet. This is one memorable—-and happily repeatable—-album.
— Lynn Heffley, Parents' Choice Foundation, May 2006

These dance parties provide a fun and social way to check out the JAMboodas vibe. We are incredibly lucky to get to share Charity's music with the Recess Community each month.  Charity has written all of the songs she performs and has an incredible library of music to share with families. Her tunes range from upbeat, rocking out, dancing, singing at the top of your lungs songs to winding down, chilling out, tucking in, singing in sweet harmonies.  For reviews and more info and to listen, go here
 

Whatever you do, come enjoy a morning of song, dance and mindfulness with your wee one, gramma and grampa, friends and neighbors...anyone you love!

Free for Recess members, Non Members can reserve a spot $28

Sneak Peek of the New Space

We’re thrilled to have our doors open and to have so many awesome families as members of our community. The majority of our programming like story time, live music and family yoga will begin in the new year. We also have new parent groups starting on 1/28, in partnership with Parentline.

For now, book your playspace pass, birthday party or join as a member while end of year discounts are still available. If you haven’t been in yet, please swing by!

Check out some great photos of our brand new space. We’re still observing how children utilize the play area and making modifications to meet the needs of kids and parents alike. So you’ll continue to see it evolve!




And if you are able to give at this time of year, please consider donating your time and money. Financial contributions are tax deductible!

Our Mission is to harness the power of community to promote healthy development through perinatal education, childhood play & community connection.

Recess Collective is an inclusive community centered space committed to supporting families from the time of pregnancy through the first four years by providing opportunities for perinatal education, play, creativity, support & connection.

By building a small, connected village, we can lighten the load.  
We aim to educate families on birthing options and postpartum support so that they can step confidently into parenthood. Then, we strive to address the intangible stumbling blocks of raising kids in an urban environment.  Authentic community support, reliable in-a-pinch caregiving options, access to vetted resources and a safe, clean space for play are all crucial to supporting parents. In this way, we provide a structure and support system for parenthood that starts at the beginning when parents need it most.  

Ultimately our vision is that every community has a Recess Collective space to come together to share resources and live playful, healthy lives.



DECEMBER: Come Play!

Thank you all so much for your patience while we've been busy completely demo'ing our new location, designing the space to meet the needs of your family & putting the finishing touches on it to create a comfortable little oasis for you, your caregivers & your children.
