Playgroup Los Angeles is a unique, homegrown, educational program rooted in whole-child & developmental play.
For 14 years, Betsy Edelberg, “Miss Betsy,” has offered enriching immersive programming for babies, children, and adults.
The foremost goal of Miss Betsy’s Playgroup Los Angeles is that little ones are provided a warm and encouraging welcome to their first-classroom. Miss Betsy believes little ones must be offered a home-like nurturing learning environment for unique qualities and abilities to grow and flourish.
“Happy is he who still loves something he loved in the nursery.”
Little ones learn and are guided to the next level of learning through a high-quality curriculum, rich literacy practice, and a predictable rhythm. Children practice burgeoning gross/fine motor, sensory, and social skills alongside parents. The course of development unfolds easily with natural and gentle structure.
Playgroups are typically mixed-age for a “family learning” style, and siblings are warmly encouraged.
All domains of development: cognitive, social-emotional, sensorimotor, are nourished through meaningful, intentional teaching.
A simple curriculum, a direct outdoor experience with nature, music and group singing & nurturing and inviting tactile play create the perfect playgroup!
Session fees vary depending on location, class/series length, and class content. The cost per-class typically begins around $35 per class. When there is space in a group, flexible, drop-in, single classes are available.
All session fees and single class fees are non-refundable, non-transferable, and paid prior to attending.
Tuition assistance is available for families facing financial hardship, email to inquire.
