We also host private free play days for schools, child care centers, and organizations interested in contracting with the Children at Play Network. Contact Melissa Rue at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Upcoming Free Play Days
The next Free Play Day will be at Bernheim’s Connect event from 6:30 – 10:30 p.m. on August 24, 2019. Come enjoy all of our regular features – boxes, tarps, rope, sticks and strings – as well as Mud and Bubble Play Zones and meet Bernheim’s Forest Giants in our Giant Forest!

Free Play Facilitators
Bernheim has a team of facilitators that provide supervision and expertise in helping to “invite” children to play in a variety of ways. Free play facilitators make “loose parts” – tree cookies, ropes, twine and boxes – available to children to use as they wish and encourage play. Free play facilitators are also on hand to help parents learn about and encourage healthy free play for their children.
