West Side Family Place will continue to provide outdoor programming. Please join us for a session of Outdoor Play or Mama and Papa Goose. WSFP recommends continued mask use, and masks are required for participants entering the house. During the summer we will gradually increase our capacity, implement a new online registration system and update our indoor program space. Further updates will be provided via our website and social media.
