Play Troop

Play Troop


Play Troop Monday to Friday 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Play Troop is the PMFRC’s daily play group.  It enables parents, grandparents, caregivers and children (ages 0-6) to interact and share in the joys and challenges of raising children. Monday to Wednesday, the program is open to children ages 0 - 6.  On Thursday and Friday, we welcome children ages 0 - 8. Wednesdays sessions are facilitated in French.

Our program focuses on the four foundations of learning from the Ministry of Education guideline “How Does Learning Happen” : belonging, well-being, engagement and expression.  

The Play Troop program promotes: 
  • literacy, social, and creative experience through play, 
  • gross- and fine- motor skill activities,  indoor and outdoor play in a Natural play environment, 
  • crafts, and
  • interactive circle time.
