About GiGi’s Wausau

The journey of GiGi’s Playhouse Wausau began with the dedication of a group of moms, family and key guiding community members in 2018.  Our journey started out as operating under a newer GiGi’s pop-up model and we were able to change our emphasis to a brick and mortar location after 6 months. Our dedicated group shifted to a governing Board of Managers and we are currently looking at facilities to call our home. We will be centrally located and will welcome families from across North Central Wisconsin. 

All of our therapeutic, educational programs and tutoring are free and support all ages, from families with a prenatal diagnosis through adult individuals with Down syndrome. Our programs focus on a variety of skills, including gross and fine motor skills, literacy and math skills, social skills, and confidence–all with the goal of helping individuals with Down syndrome become their best selves. 

GiGi’s Playhouse Wausau is committed to partnering with local businesses and organizations to further our overall mission: awareness, education, and celebration of individuals with Down syndrome within the community. If you’re interested in learning more about GiGi’s Wausau or volunteering or sponsoring programs (which are always free of charge to families!), please contact us at wausau@gigisplayhouse.org.

With over 45+ 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.
