Due to COVID-19, most PLAY membership benefits relating to our Mid-Wilshire space are on hold until further notice. All classes & activities are a la carte & by appointment.
Thanks for your interest in PLAY. Since 2005, we’ve been offering classes and community for families with kids from birth to five at our Mid-Wilshire space.
PLAY specializes in music and art, and all of our activities are designed for children to participate in along with parents or caregivers. In the design of our space and of our programs, we strive to create an environment that encourages exploration, and is fun and exciting both for kids and their adults.
We offer a full schedule of session-based PLAY music classes for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families. PLAY music is our original, music-and-movement curriculum, which we developed with the help of local artists and educators, and implemented in January 2010. We’ve since had over a thousand families participate in the program between our Mid-Wilshire location and our newer outpost at Silverlake Conservatory of Music.
Drop-in art activities are available five days a week at PLAY. These are open to all families and no reservations are required. For ages 2-5, we also offer our session-based Messy Mixed Media curriculum, which introduces different methods and materials each week with plenty of room for kids’ interpretation.
Before and after activities, families hang out in our community area, which is geared for young children and features lots of wooden toys, a library, and our communal snack table. We have healthy, mostly organic snacks available for sale. Families not participating in music or art at PLAY may access to our community area by purchasing an Art & Play card.
We enjoy helping families host events, and our Saturday afternoons and Sundays are available for private parties. We’re happy to help with party planning, and we have entertainment and activity options for birthdays from age 1 to age 5. We also host occasional music and dance parties that are open to all of our clientele.
In our retail store, we carry a hand-picked selection of wooden and modern toys, family music, children’s instruments, books, and art supplies.
Thanks again for visiting.
Hope to see you at PLAY.
