Our Play Space

Children are the exhibit in PlaySpace. Here infants, toddlers, preschoolers and children with special needs can find toys and activitites helpful to their learning and growth. Older children are welcome to help and watch these young children play. Adults in the PlaySpace can observe children in various stages of development, talk with other parents, learn home activities and explore resources for parenting. There is also a mini-library located in PlaySpace, which provides children's books and a quiet place to read. Every day of the week, at 11am, there's a special program just for pre-schoolers. Come enjoy!
