STAY & PLAY

 

We offer extended hours each day from 1-4pm. Let your child STAY with us and PLAY a while.

 

Children in our Stay & Play program, will complete their morning classes at 1pm and join their afternoon Stay & Play teacher on the second floor. Children use these three hours as a break from the morning routine to play freely in a safe, loving environment. Children are mixed ages, but are divided into three groups.  Kindergarten students join Stay & Play from 3 - 4pm.

 

STAY & NAP

Our first group is the little ones who need an afternoon nap. Our afternoon nappers will enjoy some well-earned rest in our Daily Nap Room. Children will have the same teacher and sleep in the same room each day to encourage relaxation and rest. The Nap Room teacher will read the children a sleepytime story, rub their backs, and play soft, gentle music to support rest. 

What will my child need for Stay & Nap?

-  Sleeping mat and sheet

-  Pillow

-  Blanket or small sleeping bag

-  Water bottle

-  Afternoon snack

STAY & PLAY

The second and third groups consist of our younger students (2’s & 3’s) and the older (4’s and Kindergarten) children. These children enjoy free play with friends from other classes. Mixing ages gives all Melrose children a chance to be leaders, learn from one another, and learn problem solving, as well as improving communication and conflict resolution skills with peers of different ages.

 

During these afternoon hours your child could participate in:
-  Free play

-  Large or small group activities

-  Studio time – In classroom or downstairs

-  Visit the garden

-  Enjoy a snack

-  End the day with a book and the I Wish You Well song

 

What will my child need for Stay & Play? 
-  Water bottle
-  Afternoon snack
