Our NEW Play Lab offers interactive classes designed just for children ages 2 to 5 years and includes themes like Stretch, Spin, Sound, Splash, Dwell, Shine and Squish.
Play Lab is an innovative program that brings S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) learning to life — with an interactive twist. Play Lab immerses kids in a fun, messy, creative world of vibrant sensory experiences, problem-solving activities and plenty of confidence-building social interaction.
We have two types of classes available.
The parent/child class gives mom and dad (caregivers welcome too!) the opportunity to be co-creators in invention, discovery and play… bringing them together for one of the first S.T.E.A.M-powered classes ever created for this age group.
Our drop-off class allows children ages 3-5 to experience independent fun and interaction with their peers in a safe and nurturing environment all while building the confidence they’ll need for school.
The new Play Lab programs makes the most of our state-of-the-art equipment, child-friendly environment and draws on our 40 years of expertise in early childhood education — while bringing fresh new interactive S.T.E.A.M activities to get your little scientists learning like crazy while doing the following:
Imagine playing with a life-sized slingshot. Lycra swings. Elastic bands. Things that stretch will help children learn about flexibility and strength.
Children discover centrifugal force while using salad spinners, colorful tops and the highlight of the class – kids get to twirl around in a (safe) suspended spinning saucer!
The sound lab lets children compose their own musical masterpiece, make instruments and even start their own Play Lab band! Better here than being noisy at home, right?
Kids will get their hands wet with water tables, sponges and funnels while exploring the science of surfing and splashing.
Calling all aspiring architects! Solve basic engineering problems by using blocks and building materials selected specifically for their age group. This is also a great way to explore design through trial and error, and learn the persistence to keep trying.
Kids will get their shine on as light dominates our Shine Lab with wearable lights, shadowplay, light-up-blocks and flash dancing.
The Squish Lab allows little fingers to dig into tactile play as they learn about liquids and solids. Get messy as we use art and science to create play potions that smoosh, squish and slide.
