Celebrate World Down Syndrome Day with GiGi's Playhouse Tampa

ballet-girlTARGET OPENING:  2017




THE TAMPA VISION: To open a GiGi’s Playhouse in the Tampa metro area serving the communities in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties by Fall 2017.

Our team consists of family members, friends, and professionals connected to the Down syndrome community, working hard to bring a GiGi’s Playhouse to the Tampa metro area and surrounding communities. We would like to see those we love with Down syndrome reach their highest potential, gain confidence, feel empowered and become their best of all. Our GiGi’s Playhouse location will also be a place where families, siblings, and friends can network with others and feel supported. Finally, we hope to build awareness and education about Down syndrome in Tampa and the surrounding bay area.
