These Playgroups and Kid Tours are OPEN for registration!

These playdates have already been booked after being requested by parents and are now open to our network. The price is set based on the current number of kids but can drop if more sign up. If you book the playdate at a higher rate, we will reimburse you for overpaying after the playdate has passed based on the final number of participants.  
All playdates include an activity or theme and basic supplies in the pricing. Meals are not provided and admission fees, if applicable, will be charged on top, at-cost.

What's the difference between a Playgroup and a Kid Tour?

Kid Tours are social care adventures with NYC's most celebrated attractions for kids. These tours are designed to be parent-free, though parents are welcome to join for as long as they’d like! This way, visiting and local parents alike can enjoy their own time off while knowing that their children are having a safe and meaningful childcare experience. All tours include a meal and additional enrichment lead by our playdate specialists - like arts and crafts - so that your child can have a fully immersive experience. See pre-designed tours below or request your own! Admission fees and any other requested add-ons will be included at-cost in the final invoice.

Playgroups are structured social care experiences that can take place almost anywhere. We recommend any movement-based playdate occur at a local playground or outdoor space. All other enrichment opportunities can be hosted in a living room, hotel room, residential playroom, and some even at a local restaurant. All playgroups include an enriching activity, play-time, and facilitated group games. Additional activity expenses, meals, and any other requested add-ons will be included in the final invoice.

*All Kid Tours and Playgroups include a $20 service fee. 

What is Social Care?

An activity-packed playdate or playgroup facilitated by a professional caregiver.
All Project Playdate experiences provide enrichment through social care. This means every playdate requires at least 2 children. You can keep the playdate closed to just your own network, or open it up to families in the local community. Social care allows us to incorporate best practices in socio-emotional development. It also gets the best people in childcare paid more, so that you can be sure the experience will always be professional and safe. If you need a playdate match, just ask!

Want a CUSTOM Playgroup or Kid Tour?

We'll facilitate the pooling and splitting of costs among parents. If multiple parents are splitting pay please fill out the form here and we will send over a custom invoice. We can also help you find a match if you want to have additional children to share the experience with your own.
