Virtual Playground for Social Skills Development

The Meeting House, in New York City, has created a new Virtual Playground where children can join together online with their real-world friends in an interactive space. The Playground is updated each day by adding original and curated content in diverse formats, including video, music, art, games, downloads, links, activities, yoga lessons, and storytelling. It also hosts live Meeting House Chats (referred to as “mChats”)—time to join together as a community and check in with each other through a virtual circle time that enables community members (“Juniors & School Kids,” “Teens”) to socialize and learn together in real time. Sessions are led by the organization’s professional staff and teaching artists, and will run for either 30- or 45-minute segments. Parents are invited to visit the Parent Time section, which offers professional advice on the many challenges and stresses that parents are facing today, as well as live parent support groups. Educators can also check out the section for a live educators support group.
