Join Kids at Work for Virtual PlayGroup!

Already set to jump in? Register here!

Join Kids at Work teachers for this flexible program designed to create connection and social interaction for young children aged 18 mos – 3.5 years. The program runs 2 mornings per week on a Mon & Wed schedule. This means your child will interact and connect with the same group of children for the entirety of the program.

Each week you’ll receive:

  • TWO live interactive via zoom “morning meetings” with a KAW Teacher including stories, music, surprises, and CONNECTION, with a 10:30am EST time slot.
  • TWO live interactive via zoom “special” activities with one of our amazing KAW teachers. We’re planning on music, soccer, and dance to start! You’ll be able to CHOOSE the day and time of this special activity from our schedule, and register (for free) according to your child’s availability.
  • A kit with EVERYTHING you need to complete sensory activities (excluding any perishables).
  • You’ll also receive ONE “on demand” video featuring an art/sensory/science/food prep activity with a KAW teacher, that you can complete at your leisure. We’ll send you enough materials to repeat the project, as well as variations and ways to inspire your child to expand their play using the materials we send!
  • A weekly wrap up newsletter using our amazing “StoryPark” engagement platform. You’ll be encouraged to send in clips and pics of your child in action to share with the group so we can all connect!

Parent Involvement: Children older than age 3 may remain engaged in our zoom “special” and “morning meeting” activities without too much help. Children under age 3 will need parent help. All sensory activities are adult participatory. Never leave your child unsupervised while consuming online or zoom-based content from any source. Kids at Work does not maintain that our programming will engage your children independently, since we are working with very young age groups.

Option to move to In-Person: As NYC opens up and you may feel more comfortable, our virtual students will be moved to the top of our waitlist for in-person classes. Just send us an email when you’re ready to come in person and we’ll do our best to find an age-appropriate group for you to join…

Materials, Materials, Materials!

Kids at Work will send you, or arrange for pick up from our flatiron Manhattan location, everything you need for the sensory activities in the camp: paint, glue, manipulatives, collage items, even paper to line your table with! Items are organized within your box for easy access, and come with an instruction sheet as well as an accompanying on demand video link. Everything is yours to keep!

A note on shipping: After you register, we’ll be in touch about how you’d like to receive your materials. We’ll charge the same card you used for your tuition for specific shipping costs to your location, if needed, and send you a receipt. If you choose to pick up your materials, we’ll be in touch to arrange a convenient time for contactless pick up.

Fun Themes!

Weeks 1 – 3: Sensory fun! We’ll dig in the dirt, make playdough, and read all about making a mess as we introduce your family to Kids at Work’s signature sensory play options.
Weeks 4 – 6: Family & Community We’ll read books about family, and set up play provocations that feature your child’s new community – family, students, teachers, and other community members.
Weeks 7 – 9: Autumn Leaves It will be that time of year! We’ll read some favorite books about the changing season and introduce some art projects that inspire messy, sensory based play.
Weeks 10 – 12: Brrrrr! It’s Cold Outside! We’ll talk about winter clothes, send you some fake snow to explore, and make messy snow paint using shaving cream.

Registration

Sign up for weeks 1 – 4 from the start. After that point, you’ll be billed monthly on the 15th of each month.
