Our Mission

To bring children, families, and the community together to engage in learning through creative play

Some of our main objectives include:


Creating a dynamic hands-on unstructured educational experience where children ages 2-8, along with the adults in their lives, learn through purposeful play


Providing an enriching atmosphere that is accessible to children and their families,
regardless of their disability or income


Building an atmosphere that fosters positive intergenerational relationships by
encouraging adult-child interaction


Establishing an unplugged zone where phones and electronic devices are discouraged
