Indoor Play in Tucson

Independence

Providing time for our children to have self directed play stimulates their imaginations, encourages them to problem solve, and allows them to refine their social skills – helping them to build a strong framework for a lifetime of learning.

Exploration

Play lays the foundation for higher-order thinking and later learning of formal STEM concepts. Children can use play to scientifically reason about novel objects and test hypotheses about how those objects operate

Creativity

Pretend play has been linked to creativity, and creative problem solving in particular. Through conflicts and negotiations with other children or the creation of characters, children become aware that other people have intentions and desires that may not match their own

Special Programs

Bring Your Therapist to Play

Research shows that play based therapy is more effective than any other form of therapy. Play-based therapy can capture a child’s attention and make memories that will extend beyond the therapy session. We encourage you to invite your child's speech therapist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, or psychologist to come play for free with your child's paid admission.   

Little Carboard Rocket

Let's go on a colorful adventure in Spanish!  We will be singing songs, doing fingerplays, dancing, and activities that promote healthy  bonding time with child and caregiver all while learning our colors! Spanish background is not needed.  Each family will receive a book to take home to add to their at home library so they may practice at home as well as other resources!
