Ready Set Recess is a wonderful program. If you are looking for fun, quality virtual class options to occupy your little ones in a safe and loving environment, this is definitely an excellent choice for families! The teachers are warm and engaging. My boys loved being able to see other children and interact with others. They thoroughly enjoyed bingo, nature walks, story time, art and yoga. They have a well-rounded and balanced approach in their course offerings.
With the way the world is currently, it was so nice to be able to have a platform to go to, knowing my son would be able to have interaction in a safe environment. The nature class was so great for my little explorer and to have a book reading as well just proved to be an all-encompassing class. Ms. Casey did a great job of engaging everyone and allowing time for each child to speak. The 30 minutes block was the perfect amount of time and my little guy couldn’t wait to tell the rest of the family about his exploring adventure. And it is just sweet to know he could meet buddies from all over. This is a great tool for all parents as we try to navigate this new norm. Thank you, Ms. Casey and Ms. Leigh for creating a fun, safe, creative, virtual atmosphere. We enjoyed it!
Ready Set Recess! Was an awesome way for me to both get a little work done and some much-needed “me time.” MY kids were engaged and loved everything they tried – from story time to Bop Bingo – but especially Cartoon Trivia. My only complaint is that I can’t have Ready Set Recess for them ALL DAY EVERY DAY But seriously, it was such a great time for all of us to have our own space away from each other and I highly recommend!
Fostering creativity is important for the development of children. We offer virtual art projects like coloring, painting and crafts utilizing recyclable objects just to name a few!
Cozy up and read today’s most popular children’s books with our Recess leaders as well as some heart warming classics, too. Each story time is unique allowing your child to make personal connections to literature through activities like cooking, nature walks and simple crafts.
We are always up to something fun here at Ready.Set.Recess. Make sure to keep an eye on the community calendar for Special Guests who are sure to inspire your children’s creative outlets!
Children ages 8 – 16 are welcome to attend any of our Special Events featuring a variety of musicians, artists, and other exciting Special Guests. (These classes are individually priced with a portion of proceeds going to a special cause, The Nanny Relief Fund.)
” CHILDREN LEARN AS THEY PLAY. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IN PLAY CHILDREN LEARN HOW TO LEARN.”
How does Ready Set Recess Work?
Ready. Set. Recess is a private virtual community created with parents sanity in mind. We are a community of screened childcare experts and leaders bringing virtual playtime to capture your children’s attention and bring you the much needed break you’ve been looking for. We currently utilize Zoom to connect Recess Leaders with families in a live group video chat to engage in play based activities. We are currently in beta testing and appreciate any and all feedback! We are excited to grow a thriving virtual community to spark joy in households nationwide!
Why is a Membership Worth It?
Unlike other traditional classes outside of the home that can cost anywhere from $25 to $50 per class, our virtual community of talented Recess Leaders are accessible to your child every weekday between 9AM to 6 PM for just $150 a month! This means your child has UNLIMITED ACCESS to participate in as many recess sessions as they would like each week.
Why are their multiple age groups in sessions?
We have done this for two reasons. The first being, that we understand each household will have different age groups in their homes. We want to be inclusive to each of your children. The other reason is that we believe this gives older children the opportunity to lead, guide and collaborate with other children younger than them. Thus giving them the opportunity to learn leadership skills and responsibility.
Can I cancel my membership?
We currently do not offer refunds. However, you can cancel your membership at any time. If you choose to cancel after paying for the month you will not be billed the following month.
Do I have to be in the room with my children during Recess?
We are here to help you from going crazy, however please know that recess is not suppose to replace a physical babysitter. Children should always be visible to a parent or caregiver when utilizing Ready. Set. Recess.
What holidays are you closed?
We will be closed on all major holidays including, New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Juneteenth, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
How do you Create a Safe Space?
We know each of our Recess Leaders and Special Guests personally. We have thoroughly screened each of them with a Comprehensive Background Check. With Zoom, we utilize the waiting room before Recess starts and turn off the screen sharing ability. Only members have access to the virtual community.
What age group is Recess for?
We offer sessions for Preschoolers, Kindergarteners and Elementary age children.
How many children can be in Recess at once?
In order to create an engaging virtual community we have limited each recess class to 10 households. Creating a space for children to make friends and have a chance to be heard in each class is imperative to create a thriving virtual community.
What is a Special Event?
Make sure to check in weekly to see if we are hosting a special event! Special events are not included in a membership. They are either paid or donation based. A portion of the proceeds will go towards The Nanny Relief Fund. These events are geared towards children 8-16 and include classes like painting, cooking, baking, story writing and coding.
What is the Nanny Relief Fund?
Ready. Set. Recess is an extension of Family First Household Staffing Agency. At Family First we believe nannies have a unique ability to impact the next generation in a positive way. Nannies are dear to our hearts and our team wanted to find a way to give back to them. The Nanny Relief Fund is a non-profit that gives tangible support to nannies in times of need.
