GiGi's Playhouse Fox Valley
GiGi's Playhouse Fox Valley opened its doors on April 23, 2005 becoming the 2nd GiGi’s Playhouse to open. We were originally called GiGi’s Playhouse Too! We have proudly been serving the Fox Valley region and surrounding communities with free life-changing programs since then. We continue to grow thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who serve with their time and talents, and thanks to the incredible support of a community that continues to invest in the mission of changing the way the world views Down syndrome!
We invite you to reach out and learn more, come in for a tour, learn more about volunteering, or let us be the soft place to land if you or a loved one receives a surprise diagnosis.

Our Mission and Purpose:
To change the way the world views Down syndrome and to send a global message of acceptance for all.
To see a world where individuals with Down syndrome are accepted and embraced in their families, schools, and communities.
We change lives through the consistent delivery of free educational, therapeutic-based, and career development programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community, through a replicable playhouse model.
A lifetime commitment to families.
With over 57+ brick-and-mortar locations across the United States and Mexico and 200 inquiries to start new locations all over the world, GiGi’s Playhouse is the ONLY network of Down Syndrome Achievement Centers. Every day, we provide FREE, life-changing therapeutic, educational, and career training programs for 30,000+ individuals of all ages.
Down syndrome is the largest chromosomal disability in our country and yet, it is the least funded. From a prenatal diagnosis to career skills, we make a lifetime commitment to remain by their side. Families are empowered with all the tools their child needs to succeed!
Through free programs and through our Generation G Campaign for global acceptance, we EMPOWER families by maximizing opportunities for daily achievement and lasting acceptance. To ensure lasting acceptance, we must show the world what individuals with Down syndrome are truly capable of achieving as students, co-workers, volunteers, friends, and valued members of their communities. Our program outcomes help advance this vital social impact goal.
