About GiGi’s Playhouse Westchester
GiGi’s Playhouse Westchester opened our doors in Ardsley, NY on August 1, 2015 as the 24th Playhouse in the GiGi's Playhouse network. Our participants come from Westchester, Putnam & Rockland Counties, New York City, Connecticut, and New Jersey. Our passionate group of volunteers, who average 314 hours per month, provide our programs to participants who range from infants to adults. Our participants join us on average for 287 hours monthly. We are thrilled to be so well received in our local community and to be able to provide essential services to individuals with Down syndrome and their families. All programs are offered for FREE. The positive and uplifting environment at GiGi’s Playhouse Westchester empowers those with Down syndrome and their families to reach their highest potential. GiGi’s Playhouse’s custom, research-based curriculum works towards advancing literacy, math skills, gross and fine motor skills, improving low muscle tone, building self-esteem, building social relationships, developing independence and more while fostering acceptance, awareness and networking resources for parents, siblings and the community.

Our Mission and Purpose:
To change the way the world views Down syndrome and to send a global message of acceptance for all.
To see a world where individuals with Down syndrome are accepted and embraced in their families, schools and communities.
We change lives through consistent delivery of free educational, therapeutic-based and career development programs for individuals with Down syndrome, their families and the community, through a replicable playhouse model.
A lifetime commitment to families.
With over 55+ 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.
