The winter months can be a challenge for families with young children, what with all the stuck-inside-stir-craziness. The Southborough Recreation Department hopes to help. Starting next week, they open their upstairs space at the old South Union School (map) twice a week to little ones who need a place to play.
The new play space will be open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10:00 am to noon. Developmentally-appropriate play materials will be provided for children ages 6 and under. Activities will include an obstacle course, soft balls, a rice table for pouring and scooping, blocks for building, and various table-top activities.
Admission is free, but parents and caregivers are required to stay and supervise their children. Coffee will be provided for adults, and parents are free to bring peanut-free snacks for their children. The space is for Southborough residents only.
In addition to the regular line-up of activities, the Recreation Department will also use the space to host special events, including at its grand opening on Tuesday, January 8, when local musician Dave Garden will host a kids sing-a-long. You can find all the details in the flyer below.
