The Children at Play Network hosts free play days at the Children’s Play Garden and other areas on site. Bernheim will make those dates known to the community through our website, calendar and through the communication channels of partnership organizations in the community.
Upcoming Free Play Days
No free play days are currently planned for the remainder of 2017. We are working on the 2018 calendar now. If you are interested in hosting a free play day through your school or organization we would be glad to chat with you about that possibility.
Check the blog section to see photos from some of the 2017 free play days. The ColorFest photos are available here.
Free Play Facilitators
Bernheim has staff 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.
