Circle Playtime (Pre-Shule Program)

Interested in connecting with other young progressive Jewish families? Have a child who’s not old enough for Sunday School, or who’s tagging along with an older sibling? Join Circle Playtime!

Circle Playtime (BWC's pre-Sunday School (Shule) program) is a free playgroup for families with children ages 2-5 years old. Each session includes fun age-appropriate activities, filled with music-making and storytelling related to a Jewish or social justice holiday. It is followed by open play at the nearby playground.

The program meets in Brookline.

My family loves Circle Playtime. We love the shared community, doing projects together and singing when the music teacher comes around.
