HRP Mamas Parent & Child Guided Playgroup (12-24 months)

Led and hosted by Judy Stevens of Judy's Playgroup in Tribeca

The Parent & Child Guided playgroup presents an opportunity for up to eight parents (and their respective 12-24 month-old children) to meet on a weekly basis for fun, learning, friendship and community. They will be hosted, led and facilitated by Judy Stevens, founder of Judy’s Playgroup, at the playgroup’s location on Franklin Street.

Each gathering will focus on themes such as:

Saying “No.”

Links to reading materials relevant to the various topics will be provided

The goal of this group is to help parents forge community around their shared experiences in parenting children ages 12-24 months. Judy will lead parents in conversations regarding child behavior and provide guidance.

This guided playgroup will meet for four consecutive weekly sessions for 1.5 hours each.
(please note: due to the memorial day holiday, one week will not be consecutive to the prior one - see below for dates)

About Judy's Playgroup:

Judy’s Playgroup was founded in the 1980s by artist and Guggenheim Fellowship recipient Judy Stevens. Judy’s gentle and highly creative playgroup has served as a first preschool experience for scores of toddlers in Lower Manhattan. Alumni Lena Dunham says: “I loved my time at Judy’s Playgroup.  I’m 32 and my best friends are still from there!  It’s a community, creative loving and engaged.  I feel so lucky.

HRP Mamas is thrilled to partner with Judy Stevens to offer parents a unique HRP Mamas opportunity to connect with one another in a welcoming and warm setting.
