their kids playgroups

we offer gender open playgroups throughout NYC at indoor and outdoor locations structured as drop-off childcare by their kids caregivers, designed for your children to have fun, make friends, celebrate their unique and authentic selves, and become comfortable in being cared for by non-family members and regular caregivers.

their kids welcomes children ages 15 months to 12 years of all identities.

we provide books, developmentally appropriate toys, music, costumes, instruments, art supplies, snuggles, and snacks. we facilitate an environment for children to play and explore together, curriculum free. our caregivers will engage with your children and also encourage them to participate in independent, parallel, partner, and group play.

playgroup ratios are 1:5, caregiver to child, with a maximum of 15 children per playgroup.

each playgroup is 3 hours with a fee of $60/child. their kids offers sliding scale payments on a case-by-case basis as well as scholarships that waive playgroup fees for qualifying families. reach out to us at to learn more.

information on upcoming playgroups is listed on our events page, where you can register your children. advanced registration is required.
