Anchors away! We are so excited to bring GiGi’s Playhouse to Annapolis! As a community that already has a strong Down syndrome connection (no pun intended), we are excited to expand our current support network and bring amazing educational programs, free of charge to local families with children of all ages from pre-natal to adults. To sign up for our newsletter and follow our progress, click here.
We are dedicated to helping those we love with Down syndrome reach their highest potential, gain confidence, and become empowered. We believe that establishing a GiGi’s Playhouse in Annapolis will provide invaluable resources to achieve this goal. GiGi’s custom, research-based curriculum works toward advancing literacy, math skills, gross and fine motor skills, improving low muscle tone, building self-esteem, and preparing people with Down syndrome for the workforce. Through our efforts, GiGi’s Playhouse Annapolis will generate positive awareness, foster acceptance, and build connections among parents, siblings and the community. Currently, GiGi’s Playhouse has over 14 years of experience in 30 locations in the U.S and Mexico with 10 more emerging (including Annapolis!). Please take our survey NOW and tell us about yourself, your family, and your needs.
In phase one of this great endeavor, the Start-up Team is identifying types of programs and resources our families would like to have available. We are building awareness of the invaluable benefits GiGi’s Playhouse offers our families and community, while raising money to make it happen here in Annapolis.
We are looking for families, friends, colleagues who are interested in being part of this awesome project. Whether it’s your time, resources, or expertise, we welcome you to the team. If you would like more information, please contact Anna Nardone Hayden at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to volunteer for an event, offer your expertise as a therapist, or join a committee (fundraising, events, community awareness), please reach out to us!
Since all programs are FREE to families, every donation makes a difference. All monetary donations are tax deductible. GiGi’s Playhouse is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Thank you for your support!
