Freedom Within Limits

Allow your little one to explore our baby and child friendly 1700 sq. foot space or our enclosed beautiful children's garden. You can sit back and give them age appropriate freedom while still being close by if intervention or assistance is needed.

Experiential
Learning

All of our classes, activities, and toys are intended to inspire and engage your child (and you'll love them too!). We carefully plan them all with a focus on helping your child in all areas of development.

If your child loves things that go vroom, we have an entire shelf of trains, cars, trucks, planes, and more. They can even build out a train track throughout the play space or do so on the train table.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ When can I come to visit? Should I call ahead?

Your first visit is free! We'll give you a tour, tell you more about our classes, you can relax, your kiddo play, and if there's a class going on, feel free to try it out, on us!

Our first visit trial hours are Tuesdays- Fridays from 12-4. No need to notify us ahead of time, just come on in!

+ Is the subscription by the month or 30 days?

You can join any day of the month and your month of membership is rolling for 30 days.

Your payment method will be automatically charged again in 30 days.

+ Do you clean the toys and equipment?

We go to great lengths to keep our space as clean as possible, including the toys and equipment. We typically clean with a 50/50 mix of water and vinegar with a small amount of essential oil such a tree tea oil or lavendar.

We do ask everyone that if a toy ends up in your child's mouth or nose, to please place it in the dirty toy bin when the child is finished with it to ensure full sanitation.

If you see something that is not properly cleaned, broken, or not secure, please alert a staff member so the issue can be resolved.

+ Can I drop off my child? Can my babysitter or another caregiver bring them?

We do require a caregiver to be with your child at all times. Our classes are not drop off. However, any family member, babysitter, or other approved caregiver can bring your child, as long as you've included them in your list of approved caregivers in your account. *Check out our new GO Parent-Parents monring out coming in September!

+ Can I bring a friend's child or other family member? Can I share a membership with another family?

Memberships cannot be shared with friends or children that are not in your immediate family. However, we'd love for your nephew, cousin, or friend to join so that they can join in the fun too!

+ What if I don't use my days? Can I recieve a refund?

Unfortunately, similar to other member based programs, there are no refunds permitted.

+ What is the sick policy?

We ask that members not come if they or their child have had a fever, green mucus, vomiting, or any clear signs of illness within the past 48 hours. We have many newborns and children with developing immune systems who visit and we would like to keep illnesses from here to a minimum!

In order to protect all of our members, we do reserve the right to ask you or your child to come back another day if we see clear signs of illness.

+ Can we bring snacks or lunch? Is this an allergen free business?

We do have a no food policy expect for breastmilk, formula, or closeable drinks. This is to keep small babies and kids with allergies safe. However, students are welcomed to eat their snacks outside and come back after it is finished.

The expect to the no food policy is for multiple hour and all day classes.

That being said, while we try to reduce the risk for allergencs, we do not claim to be allergen free space.

+ How do I upgrade, change, or cancel by membership?

We ask for 7 days notice so that we can make the proper changes in our system. You can do this by contacting us by email, phone, or in person.

+ Do you close for holidays or other events?

We do typically close one weekend per quarter to host a professional training. Weekend members do have their membership credited accordingly that month.

+ What are the Play & Learn Club hours?

We are currently open Tuesday-Friday from 9-4 and Saturday-Sunday from 9-1.

We do have some classes during off hours that are open to members and are indicated on the calendar and class lists.

If you're not a member and you're interested in becoming one, your first visit is free if you come by Tuesday-Friday between 12-4.

+ If I am not interested in a particular class can my child still come to play?

Absolutely! As long as it is during open Play & Learn Club hours, you can come for open play, even, if there is a class going on.

+ I have an infant and a toddler/preschooler. Can I bring both children to classes, even if the particular class isn't geared toward one's age group ?

Definitely! What's cool about our space is that your child is always in view and there's plenty to do. If you're enjoying a music class with your infant, your toddler or presschooler can be playing on the playgym or building am epic train track. And chances are there will be other kids for them to interact with as well.

And if you need a baby holder or kiddo wrangler, our staff is here to help with both! Just let us know how we can help!
