Important Updates for Summer Programming at GiGi’s Playhouse Chicago

We are thrilled to announce that our summer programming session will commence the week of June 3rd!

As we gear up for this exciting session, we want to inform you of some important program changes that have been implemented. Your understanding and cooperation with these adjustments are greatly appreciated, as they are designed to ensure that our programs continue to meet the needs of all our participants.

Here are the key changes to note:

  1. Fantastic Friends: Fantastic Friends will not be offered this summer. However, we eagerly anticipate its return this fall!
 
  1. Teen Tastic: Teen Tastic has undergone scheduling adjustments and will now take place on Wednesday nights from 6pm – 7pm. This program is exclusively for teens ages 13-17 and will be offered every other Wednesday. You must RSVP using your My GiGi’s account on our online program calendar to be able to attend. The Teen Tastic summer session will start on June 12th and run every other Wednesday ending on August 7th.

 

  1. Yoga: Yoga sessions will continue to occur every other Wednesday evening from 6pm – 7pm and are open to all ages. You must RSVP using your My GiGi’s account on our online program calendar to be able to attend. The Yoga summer session will start on June 5th and run every other Wednesday ending on August 14th. Please note, there will be no yoga on July 3rd in honor of the 4th of July holiday.
  1. GiGiFIT Adult & GiGi’s Kitchen Adult: Thursday programming is now exclusively for adult participants ages 18+. GiGiFIT Adult and GiGi’s Kitchen Adult will alternate every other Thursday evening from 5:30pm – 7:00pm. Please note that both programs now require you to enroll for the program, instead of RSVPing online, during the designated enrollment period. This process is similar to how you would enroll for literacy, math, or speech tutoring at the Playhouse via an online application. GiGiFIT Adult also requires a signed physician form that must be presented to a GiGi’s Playhouse staff member before you attend your first GiGiFIT Adult program. This protocol is implemented to prioritize the safety of all participants during exercise activities. It’s important that our program leaders are fully informed about any health conditions our participants may have.
 
Enrolment for GiGiFIT Adult is open now and will close on Friday, June 7th. GiGiFIT Adult will start on June 13th and will be offered every other Thursday ending the week of August 8th.

  1. GiGiFIT Infant: Previously known as Crawlers & Walkers. GiGiFIT Infant will continue to be offered on the second Saturday of every month from 10am – 11am. This program is intended for ages birth to 4 years old. This program now requires you to enroll in the program, instead of RSVPing online, during the designated enrollment period. This process is similar to how you would enroll for literacy, math, or speech tutoring at the Playhouse via an online application. GiGiFIT Infant now requires a signed physician form that must be presented to a GiGi’s Playhouse staff member before you attend your first GiGiFIT Infant program. This protocol is implemented to prioritize the safety of all participants during exercise activities. It’s important that our program leaders are fully informed about any health conditions our participants may have.

  1. LMNOP (Language, Music, N’ Our Peeps): LMNOP programs will continue to be offered on the 4th Saturday of every month from 10am – 11am. This program is intended for ages birth to 4 years old. You must RSVP using your My GiGi’s account on our online program calendar to be able to attend. The LMNOP summer session will start on May 25th and will be offered on the 4th Saturday of every month ending on August 24th.

We kindly ask for your attention to the age restrictions on each program, particularly the Teen Tastic program on Wednesdays and the adult programming on Thursday nights. Additionally, please note the updated registration process for GiGiFIT Adult, GiGi’s Kitchen Adult, and GiGiFIT Infant programs, where a commitment for the entire session is required upon application submission.

Your cooperation and understanding are vital in ensuring a smooth transition into our revamped programming. If you have any questions or require further clarification, please reach out to our Program Coordinator, Nillam Raja, at nraja@gigisplayhouse.org.

We look forward to seeing you at GiGi’s Playhouse Chicago this summer!
