OPEN PLAYGROUND                                                                                          
The Open Playground is an unstructured program. Unlike in a camp, children are not forced to participate in any specific activity. Arts & Crafts projects are offered daily, as well as wiffleball, street hockey, and other sports. Field trips are scheduled weekly for different age groups, and have in the past included Water Wizz, NE Patriots Experience, Lobster Tales and a trip to a zoo, among others.  Upon registration, children are given a Playground t-shirt that must be worn on field trips. There are also special event days at the Playground, such as the Playground Fair, Field Day, and Pizza Day. On Monday mornings, children can also attend "Arts in the Park," a program sponsored by the Stoughton Public Library. Transportation is also available to and from Playground to either the Dawe, Hansen, Gibbons, West, or Jones schools for a minimal fee.

Open Playground goes from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Children should bring a lunch, snack, and plenty of fluids to drink. Lunches should have the child's name written on them. Please also note that on rain days, playground ends at noon, and there is no return transportation for children taking the bus. The decision of whether any day is declared a "rain day" is made at 11 a.m. on that day. Please call the Recreation Office at 781-341-1300 ext. 9244 if you have any questions.

Fee:  $350.00 for six weeks or $70.00/week  A two week minimum is required.

One session is offered 8:30-11:30 a.m.and is held rain or shine. Children should have a snack and drink for this program, and should enter through the front entrance of the school. Transportation is not available for children participating in Pre-Playground.
