September is here, come have fun at our FREE programs!

Join us for our free programs! We’re ready for a new school year and hope you will take advantage of these awesome offerings! Sign up for these programs below. 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.
