Project P.L.A.Y. School is Opening a New Infant Center!

The Infant Center, slated to open in Fall 2019, will provide a safe, nurturing, and inspiring environment, staffed by loving teachers who will support and facilitate the wonder of each child’s earliest experiences outside the home. Project P.L.A.Y. honors the curiosity and newfound skills that each child possesses as they grow and become more aware of the world around them. 

Project P.L.A.Y. School is very excited to expand with the opening of an Infant Center, providing care for children beginning at three months of age. It is a natural extension of their space at Bok, providing a needed service for current families as well as new families from the community.

Project P.L.A.Y's mission is to create an environment where the promise of each child can be realized. They are a unique, non-profit infant center and preschool specializing in learning through authentic experiences and nurturing, respectful relationships. Each day, they see the children in their care experiencing the joy that comes from self discovery, mastering new skills, and learning to navigate social situations with success.

But What About Fur Babies?

The community at Bok is just as crazy about dogs as you are. Not only are we a dog-friendly building, but we have tenants who support rescue organizations and we created a public dog park! Read more about all our paw-some pup pals.

Giving Back (Bark)

Bok tenant Franklin + Whitman creates plant-based, cruelty-free skin and hair care products, but their mission doesn't stop there. Inspired by their love of dogs (big, small, all!), the company pledges 5% of all sales to dog rescue organizations. That means 5% of every purchase of their products (online or wholesale) goes to helping dogs in need.


Dog friendly, now + forever 

Did you know that we are a dog-friendly building? Many of our tenants bring their pups to the office ("paw-fessional pups", as we like to call them). 


Dudley Dog Park

In addition to our dog-friendly nature, we also have a public dog park on 9th and Dudley. Bring your canine companion for a romp in the park! Open hours are weekdays 7AM-9PM, weekends 8AM-9PM.


What’s Next

On September 7th and 8th, Bok alumni are welcomed back to the building for two days of tours, activities, and more during Bok’s first ever Alumni Weekend. For everyone else, come check out all the businesses at Bok during our fall Open Studios on October 11th from 4PM-7PM. Shop our tenant’s creations at another Made@Bok Market on September 14th from 12PM-5PM in the Workshop. The following day, come back to Bok for a free day of games and family fun at the 4th annual B[L]OK PARTY from 12PM-5PM on Mifflin Street. This event is rain or shine!
