Register your child for our bilingual virtual story!

We hope you’re having a very happy summer!

Stop & Play, our drop-in creative arts childcare center is opening in South Florida very soon, and we are eager to share the magic of storytelling with the little ones we hope to meet soon!

As we all know (and feel!) the summer is well underway and with it comes the summer slide. The summer slide is a decline in reading ability and other academic skills that can occur over the summer months when school isn't in session. Numerous studies show that kids who don't read during summer vacation slip in reading ability by the time autumn rolls around.

Our English and Spanish story hour takes place at 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays respectively through August 21st. Sign and up and let Stop & Play read to your child(ren) while you prepare dinner — or scroll on Instagram — it’s ok, you deserve a break and that’s what we’re here for!

During our virtual story hour, parents and kids will meet some of our Play Facilitators, Ms. Marlo, Mrs. Karen, and Ms. Claudia as they read stories in English and Spanish, followed by an interactive discussion on Zoom!
