Jericho Playgroup

NOTICE – The Playgroup is CANCELLED for the time being and will not be in session this fall. Thank you for your understanding.

Jericho Playgroup is a delightful 90-minutes of social time for children birth to age 5 and their grown-ups. Our large space offers many opportunities for active and free play, crafts, snack and story time. 

We welcome children birth to age five along with their caregiver. We meet on Monday mornings, according to the school calendar, from 10:00 until 11:30. Our morning together offers time for socializing and free play including floor play, gross motor activity and crafts.  We clean up together and move to group snack time (food provided by families). We wrap up the morning with books, music and movement activities. 

Families from any town are welcome to come on a drop-in basis. There is no cost, and no registration. Our attendance changes from week to week, but typically we have anywhere from 10 to 25 children along with their caregivers. We have had as many as 30+. As facilitator, I am prepared to offer information about early childhood resources.

The community outreach we provide through the Jericho Playgroup continues to be a valuable resource for parents and caregivers, and a rewarding endeavor for me as a facilitator. We are most grateful to Good Shepherd for their support, and for the continued loyalty and interest of our attendees. We hope to continue to serve our community in this way for many years to come.

I am Susan Ruess, a retired VT licensed elementary ed teacher, and the Jericho Playgroup facilitator. I can be reached with any questions at or via the contact form below.

Many thanks! – Susan
