Spring Activities: Tips from a Quincy, MA Kindergarten

It’s that time of year again. It’s not pretty and snowy, or warm enough to use the playground. March often brings a unique set of challenges. Everyone is restless from being cooped up inside all winter, but the weather isn’t quite fit for a beach day. Even though the warm temperatures aren’t that far off, it’s still a little early to rely on being able to walk to the local playground. Here at Wollaston Child Care – a Quincy, MA kindergarten – we want to help you find enriching, springtime activities for your child.

We recognize that some of these suggestions are more costly than others. When in doubt, always check their websites for deals and membership programs that can help cut costs. Packing your own lunch and using public transportation can also make the trip more affordable. Additionally, lots of local libraries offer discounted, or even free, passes to local education facilities. Here at our Quincy, MA kindergarten, we want to foster children’s interests and support local programs. What’s your favorite rainy day activity?
