West Side Play Space (WSPS) is a co-op where families and children can come together to play, learn and build community during the colder months of November-April. WSPS offers children ages 0-5 opportunities for movement, quiet reading, art, imaginative play, and infant-safe exploration, as well as special programming and events throughout the year. 

As a cooperative organization, participating families all play a role in the operation of the space.  The co-op model ensures low cost, high-value programming. Our goal is to provide a venue where families can connect -- to foster ongoing friendships and a sense of community for you and your children.  All are welcome and families from anywhere in RI may sign-up to become members.

For $10/month and one volunteer shift per month (1.5 hours during the week or 2 hours on the weekend) you have full access to tumbling space, educational play toys, cozy reading nooks, art supplies and projects, special events, and member-only birthday party rentals.

Located at the former Asa Messer Elementary School Annex (245 Althea Street, Providence) in the heart of the West Side, WSPS offers both weekday and weekend open play hours. Check the calendar page for updates on special events.
