Getting in the Swing of Things with Plan & Play!

In January, we got together with some of our Collier County families for a Plan & Play meet up  at the park. Old and new friends were found there with an abundance of smiles! We had so much fun and thank all who were there for providing input into which of the 30+ GiGi’s Playhouse programs we should offer first when we open our doors. If you couldn’t make it, stay tuned for more opportunities to connect with us! If you live further north, please join us February 18 from 9:30-11:30 at Four Freedoms Park in Cape Coral.  We look forward to seeing you for fun times and Playhouse planning!

We are looking for volunteer VIDEO STARS — Children of all ages and young adults with Down syndrome to appear on our website and to star in some of our demonstration videos for Wordy Worm® Reading and Raising Robust Readers. Stars do not have to be able to read but should be comfortable working with a stranger and in front of a camera. Give our website visitors the gift of seeing your ROCK STAR.
