Inventors & Innovations!
We have an extra-fun summer planned for you at KidsPlay!
KidsPlay’s programs guide children and caregivers to actively explore their world and
practice learning in a group setting. In our programs, children engage with concepts of
learning, build life-skills, and spark curiosity. Our core programs incorporate imagination,
communication, exploration and fun. Play is the brain’s favorite way to learn.
