Play matters

Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids' healthy development. Play is how kids learn--here, it is in both a STEM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.

Our campus is currently under construction as we prepare for solar power. Please follow all temporary signage and keep children with you at all times. Thank you for your patience as we go green! Advance ticket reservations are required to visit and masks must be worn indoors by all visitors ages 2+.
