Join us for our free programs! We’ve had a great summer and are excited to add some special events this month. Sign up for those events below, as well as our dedicated monthly programs. In addition, look out for new programs we will add in the coming months. Our purposeful programs help deliver GiGi’s mission of “Best of All”.

What is ‘Best of All’?

Best of All is continual, measurable, celebrated and it never ends. We challenge you to do a little better than you did the day before.  We always celebrate these accomplishments. Possible manifestations include standing just one second longer, reading just one more word, learning just one new number, taking just one more step. Best of All is never a competition and never completed.

Legoland is coming to GiGi’s Playhouse!

Come hang out with a team of builders and let’s see where our imagination will take us! Legoland is providing  LEGO sets along with some display models to interact with.
