Play isn’t just for fun, play is how your child learns how to engage with the world. It teaches them social, emotional and problem solving skills that will be beneficial for the rest of their lives.
Play Dates are designed to bring together parents/grandparents/sitters of similar age children. It’s not a structured class but more of a hang out and get together. Each age group has a weekly time for their play date (All ages are still welcome to enjoy the play space).
They are wonderful opportunity for children to make friends and grown ups meet other caregivers. We have seen many moms, dads, grandmothers and sitters meet at Bay & Bee and becoming friends, enjoying meetings at each other’s houses, parks or grabbing coffee/breakfast together on their way to or from Bay & Bee, as well as going out without kids in the evenings!
It’s been amazing to watch incredible friendships formed during play dates among children and their caregivers, whether they are new to Jax, new to parenting or simply enjoying their kids play with other kids their age.
