About GiGi's Playhouse

GiGi's Playhouse is a one-of-a-kind achievement center for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community. GiGi's Playhouse offers more than 25 therapeutic and educational programs that advance literacy, math skills, motor skills and more; all of which are free of charge.

Programs are created by professional therapists and teachers who generously donate their time and expertise. All programs are based on best practices for Down syndrome learning styles, and customized to ensure individual success. GiGi's Playhouse actually serves infants through adults. GiGi's Playhouse is headquartered in Hoffman Estates, IL; with over 30 locations throughout the United States and Mexico, with more opening soon.

GiGi's Playhouse makes a difference every day. Our unique points of difference empower individuals and their parents to achieve their greatest potential with confidence, independence, and joy. We have a "place": we will never let location be a barrier to success. We have "programs": we will never let curriculum be a boundary to achievement. Most importantly, programs are free. We will never let cost deter our families from participation or impede the achievement of our children and adults.
