A Typical Day at the Playspace
We are open Monday and Thursday mornings from
10 a.m. to 12 noon.
Families are welcome to arrive and depart any time within this time frame.
The playspace is closed when the Lowell Public Schools are closed or delayed due to inclement weather.
10:00. A parent volunteer opens the doors and greets TFC members and visitors!
10:30. Snack time! A parent volunteer sets out healthy snacks for the children, who eat at child-sized tables. Snacks are provided by TFC, as are high chairs for infants. Couches are available throughout the playspace for nursing mothers.
11:00. A parent volunteer leads an arts-and-crafts project, using materials from TFC's supply closet.
11:45. "It's time to clean up, clean up; everybody do your share." All parents and children help put away the toys. When the room is clean, a parent volunteer leads the closing music circle, beginning with the "ABC" song and ending with "Ring Around the Rosie."
12:00. A parent volunteer closes up the playspace.
