When you Visit…
To keep our space safe, comfortable and playful for all, please take a moment to read our guidelines:
When you visit, please check in at the front desk.
Be sure to bring socks for you and your little one(s), as our playspace is shoe-free.
You're welcome to bring food & drink from home to enjoy in our kitchen area. However, please do remember that Recess is a no nut zone to keep those with allergies safe. Basic snacks, coffee and tea are available for purchase in the kitchen area.
Keep sick at home! We ask that you are mindful that illness spreads quickly amongst children. If your child isn’t feeling well, please do not risk the health and safety of other children visiting the space. All children should be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to Recess.
Unplug. Please consider using your visit to Recess to leave technology behind, connect with your child, and make new connections with other parents and caregivers.
Stay Within Arms Reach. Adults are responsible for the children they bring in to play. Caregivers must supervise their children at all times, and maintain a 1:3 ratio (one caregiver for 3 kids).
In addition to free play, enrichment & new activities are a great way to engage with your child and nurture their development. By building a small, connected village, we can lighten the load.
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.
Key elements of an inclusive space are built in to our guidelines for visiting. Please take a moment to read through them, and share with anyone who will be bringing your child to play.
Harnessing community to support families
The membership format of Recess fosters community building, support and friendships...significantly more so than a drop-in facility.
You get more out of your time in our space and so does your child. Let us know if you have any questions or ideas!
Stay tuned for Member Only hours, special events and perks from our community partners.
Great for development - Zero clean up required
Research shows that child-directed play is crucial to development. Throughout each week, check the schedule of playspace activities. These typically include sensory play, big block play, storytime and other spontaneous activities intentionally designed so that your child can participate...or not! No sign up (or stress) necessary.
Space for Parties
We offer packages for 5-45 guests to celebrate a birthday, baby shower, family friendly event or a simple get together. Regardless of the type of party, we'll provide the backdrop to make it a success!
Support for Grown Ups
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.
