Boyer’s Toddler Playgroup Program

Come for the learning. Discover the magic. Stay for the community.

At Boyer, children and their caregivers explore, imagine, learn, and grow together in a nurturing and supportive environment. Our classes offer a play-based curriculum structured with age-appropriate activities, materials and routines. Research shows that play-based education encourages self-exploration, conflict resolution, and provides critical learning skills in resilience, confidence, and more – all while joyfully having fun!

During class, parents will gain priceless knowledge from our experienced educators. Learn how to support your child through transitions, social interactions with peers/less-familiar adults, and encourage active participation in learning routines, trying new things and making safe choices.

In addition, Boyer’s close-knit community is unrivaled. Families gain a foundation for growth, a heart for inclusivity, a joy for learning, and friendships that extend years beyond the classroom.

Program Highlights:
• Two class options for children ten months to three years old.
• Experienced, enthusiastic, long-term teachers who create a supportive and caring environment for all children and families.
• Bright, fun-filled classrooms and indoor gymnasiums with engaging activities and materials that encourage imagination, confidence and socialization.
• Classes offered at both our Montlake and Magnuson Park locations.
