Our stain glass window project is inspired from the sunlight streaming in the windows onto the columns at the Washington National Cathedral.


We are so fortunate to be able to simply step outside our classroom for field trips in Historic Glen Echo National Park.

On Fridays we discover our fantastic Washington Area him.

Friday Outings are an important component of the Playgroup model because they inspire us, connect us to our wider community beyond Glen Echo, allow us to explore new places, and creates opportunity to further build relationships with Playgroup families.

Each Friday, mostly at 10AM

Locations for outings are inspired by the emerging curriculum in the classroom, but there are several ‘Playgroup Classics”. These include the National Cathedral, the Botanical Gardens, Imagination Stage, the Hirshhorn, the National Zoo, and the Natural History Museum. We also encourage parents to share favorite places that we might not have been to yet!

Follow where we go on our outings blog! And you can go there too.
