Welcome to GiGi’s Playhouse Syracuse! We are so glad you are here. GiGi’s Playhouse is a group of Down syndrome achievement centers across North America, where individuals with Down syndrome and their families can learn, develop, grow and share. All of our programs are free to our families and are educational and/or therapeutic in nature. GiGi’s Playhouse is something different to everyone – (education, therapy, support, fun, self esteem) but for all its a place to belong. Our tag line is educate. inspire. believe. The Playhouse is so much more than a place, it is a feeling. A feeling of hope, acceptance and excitement that extends to the family and in to the community. Have a look around and see the great time we are having. Be sure to sign up for our Newsletter to be kept up to date on all the programs and events.
Thank you Congruent Media for your time & talent
“One night as I carried GiGi to bed, I could feel the weight of her low muscle tone. A weight you never knew existed due to her never ending smile and sheer determination. At that moment, I realized how strong she actually was. As I carried her up the stairs, I made a promise to her that I would change the way the world looked at a person with Down syndrome; that I would help people understand that her and all of her friends were so much more than a diagnosis. With the help of people like you and the Playhouses across the world, that promise is being kept – not just for GiGi but for all our children.”
