Weekly Recesses

How It Works

AnySchoolers has a year-round, weekly “hang out and do fun things” schedule! Activities shift around the four seasons, marked by equinox and solstice celebrations. We generally alternate every other week between structured activities and casual, unstructured play. To find a list of recesses on our online calendar, search for "Weekly Recess".


Structured Recess


Structured activities generally require a quick registration on the Calendar (where you can find even more details about the recess/seasonal events) for each date, so we know how many families to plan for. They're listed under our Special Events. Depending on the specific event, some require advanced payment to AnySchoolers, some require payment onsite directly to the venue, and some are absolutely free you just RSVP!  Structured Recess is scheduled from 10am-12pm unless noted otherwise.


Casual, Unstructured Recess


Casual, unstructured recess is open to anyone and “just show up”! It does help us look for you if you RSVP on the Calendar, where the location and dates are listed for the entire year! The unstructured playground locations rotate in five parts of the KC Metro (Central, North, East, Central, South, West). Casual Recess is scheduled from 12pm-3pm. Are you a regular AnySchooler? We have a SignUp Genius for casual recesses to make sure there is a “Warm, Smiling Face” at every playground!
