FreePlay 2020 Schedule

Feel free to drop off kids, and hang out.

This activity represents one of our main values: inclusiveness

Free Play is kid-driven unstructured play.  While this sounds idle and simple, it's not.  JOTP has created a unique environment, grooved and fine-tuned by the kids and leaders over time to bring back the lost language of unstructured play as the best learning environment. Best practice of small sided, equalized games, different balls and different surfaces create a fun involved climate for accelerated learning.  We encourage JOTP kids to put in lots of hours of this type of play and offer times at the center for kids to meet and engage.
