Explorative Play for our Earliest Learners

About 2-4-1 PLAY
At 2-4-1 PLAY we are passionate about helping young children develop healthy bodies and minds through movement and play. When kids learn how to move their bodies while developing fundamental movement skills, their minds grow and they find the confidence to move actively through life.
We provide an authentic environment where our goal is for children to EXPLORE movement, DISCOVER challenges and GROW to their highest potential.
2-4-1 PLAY Classes for Young Children
We offer classes for young children 18 months to five years in age that focus on developing physical literacy and social emotional skills through play.
Classes are designed to inspire movement and play to set children on a path of developing the ability, balance, confidence, desire and explorative nature to be active for life. This is done through providing a rich experience igniting active play where children are free to discover by jumping, crawling, climbing, running, catching, throwing, kicking and much more. Without even knowing it, children are growing their bodies and minds to set them on their way towards reaching their highest potential.
Play sessions are theme based and an imaginative setting is created for children to explore movement and discover ways to use their bodies. For example, one class will use mats, beams and tents to take the children to the mountains where they can hop over a stream, crawl across an elevated log or climb up a rock and jump off into a lake. Other classes will take the kids to engaging locations around the world as we will use play equipment in a new way to encourage fundamental movement and motor skill development.
Parents and care givers attend classes with their children. Through attending class, adults will learn how to guide active play outside of class to further develop the child’s physical literacy. Adults are welcome to, but are not required to participate in the entire class.
Each six week session offers weekly 45 minute classes. Children can be registered for one or two classes per week.
Mini Movers classes are 18 months to 3 years in age
Mighty Movers classes are for children 3 to 5 years in age
2-4-1 PLAY Class Experience
Classes are gently led by experienced teachers who balance guiding physical, social and emotional development and providing an environment where children are free to explore, discover and grow through following their own imagination and interests.
Each class begins with guided group activities focusing on connecting children to one another and to their own body. Teachers will then introduce play equipment and children are free to explore, discover, and grow through self-guided play. We finish class with a guided mindful cool-down for children to begin to learn how to direct how they are feeling and re-center before heading into the rest of their day.
