Babies Say, “It’s Our Turn to Play!”

Knock Knock’s Big Backyard is exclusively reserved for our youngest visitors and their special grown-up on Tuesdays and NOW THURSDAYS in March. Each two-hour session (10am – 12pm) is specifically designed for children 0-4 years old to give them the opportunity to explore and make connections to the world around them. You and your little ones will enjoy storytime, an art or sensory activity, and free play throughout Our Big Backyard. They will have plenty of time to get creative, and maybe a little messy, in the mud kitchen, sandbox, playhouse, paint area, and more.  

Due to the incredible demand, we have expanded our Grown-up & Me Play Dates to Thursdays in March as well beginning March 11th. The Thursday dates are only available as a bundle, so you have to register for all four. But as a bonus the 4th session is free.

All children are required to be accompanied by an adult. Only one adult will be allowed per registration. All adults and children over 4 are required to wear a mask. Children ages 2-3 are strongly encouraged to wear a mask as much as possible.  Please dress for outside messy play.  Should we experience bad weather that session will be canceled.

We also offer special scholarships for those who qualify. These scholarships are made possible through the support of Capital Area United Way. Simply submit an application by clicking the button below prior to registering to see if your child is eligible.
