GiGi's Playhouse Fox Valley

GiGi’s Playhouse Fox Valley is nestled in the heart of the Fox Valley region serving Aurora, Naperville and the surrounding communities. We offer 29 programs that are educational or therapeutic in nature serving individuals from birth through adults, their families and the community.

GiGi’s Playhouse Fox Valley is committed to partnering with local businesses and organizations to further the overall mission of awareness of the potential for people with Down syndrome within the Fox Valley community. Our success of offering quality programs and running a cost efficient playhouse depends greatly on our volunteers and donations- both in-kind and cash. If you’re interested in learning more about us, volunteering or sponsoring some of our programs (all of which are offered free to families), e-mail us at foxvalley@gigisplayhouse.org

With over 50+ 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.

 

GiGi's Playhouse is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and is solely funded by donations.
