It’s fall and we’re keeping up the magic of child directed, loose parts, outdoor nature play with The Backyard Atelier. Here’s how it works: We bring the loose parts and café goodies, and set up play space on the outdoor lawn at Yoga Parkside, suitable for babies up to about age 7.
Check your dates and book your Saturday morning with us by registering online by midnight Friday, Oct 7 at. Invite your friends and family to meet you there with their kiddos, and breathe easier knowing that you’ve got some quality down time to get out as a family AND see friends. Plus, this is a wonderful opportunity to meet other families. The kids have a great time playing, and the adults get to sit back and relax. What could be better than that?
Oh yes, treats for the adults! We’re switching over to heated fresh brew Tipico Coffee with cream and sweetener on the side, along with current selection of Butter Block pastries. Options will be listed online. Be sure to place your order in advance to hold your selection.
ThePop Up Playdate Café has become a positive escape for moms and dads, and the kids love it too… so everybody wins.
“Creativity is nurtured by freedom and stifled by the continuous monitoring, evaluation, adult-direction, and pressure to conform that restricts children’s lives today”. -Peter Gray, PhD, Professor of Psychology at Boston College, author of Free to Learn and regular contributor to Psychology Today.

The Backyard Atelier is an outdoor, play-based early childhood program that draws inspiration from the Adventure Playground movement (playwork), Reggio Emilia Approach and Forest schools of Europe. By creating a curated space that prioritizes each child’s play agenda, children are encouraged to explore their interests, questions and big ideas through open-ended, child-directed, loose parts play.
