Designed by experts, our age-appropriate activities help develop the cognitive, physical and social skills of children as they play.

Our Play-osophy

For over 40 years, we have been sparking a love of learning with millions of families around the world, with research-based play programs designed by experts. Our custom curriculum is uniquely created around the 3 keys to early childhood learning (Social/Emotional, Cognitive and Physical).

Play is critical to your child’s brain development, as well as their social and physical growth. That’s why our play programs are researched, tested and expertly executed. Child-led, teacher-facilitated, and parent-modeled; three elements that produce a one-of-a-kind play experience for children and parents.

Our leading-edge programs are also designed to support your needs as a parent. With parent involvement at the core of our philosophy, we provide a safe environment where your child can be challenged, learn and thrive; and where you have the opportunity to celebrate their milestones, ask questions and meet other parents just like you.

Innovative Playscapes

We provide an environment where children are free to move, play and explore safely. Our proprietary equipment was designed by Jay Beckwith, a nationally respected playground designer with more than 40 years of experience, who created every structure with the needs of children in mind. Our play environments are designed to deliver the high-quality standard parents expect for their children and designed for your little one to try, learn, play, fall and try again!

We reconfigure our modular proprietary playscapes every two weeks, consistently creating new experiences and challenges. An ever-changing environment and challenging activities means your child is always learning in a ridiculously fun, incredibly inviting and super safe environment!
