Playtime at Marindale

“I remember when we first came up with the idea for playdates, and I felt like crying with gratitude for the OTHER parents, remembering how there was nothing like that available when Oliver was in preschool. We, as experienced parents, can offer so much to those just starting out. I remember taking mental notes (if not actual notes) of every utterance of an experienced parent back then. I was so desperate for information and reassurance.”

– Kathleen O’Brien

Playtime is a monthly event for families with a child (age 8 and under) who receives special education services. The whole family (siblings included) can have fun together at the playground at Marindale school campus. Special education teachers and paraprofessionals are on hand to help out while parents have a chance to enjoy a cup of coffee and connect with each other. Questions? Email
