Birthday parties


Dear Modern Recess friends and family,

It is with a heavy heart that we would like to inform you that that we will be moving out of our Crow Canyon location on July 1st, 2017. We have enjoyed serving you and your children for the past 4 years at this location and are grateful for your business and support. Unfortunately, due to increasing rent costs we must transition from this location. Transitioning from this studio will be a difficult occasion but we look forward to working with you again in a new space starting in the fall.

Our last day will be on Thursday, June 29th, 2017 and we will be having a pizza party at 5:30pm after our last class to thank you for your support. Please RSVP if you are able to attend so we have an accurate headcount. Everyone is welcome – past, current members,  friends and family!

Please continue to direct any inquiries to Stephanie at modernrecess@gmail.com or 925-302-6593.

Thank you for your business and continued support.

Party FAQs

 What ages are ideal for birthday parties at Modern Recess?

Our games are non-competitive and structured and require kids follow simple directions. Siblings under 3 are welcome to attend and we will have a designated area for them to keep busy under their parent/guardian supervision while the older kids are participating in structured games and activities. We will have time for unstructured, supervised free play which the toddlers can join the older kids.
