What is there to do?

It's playtime at the Purple Monkey Playroom!

There is over 1,500 square feet of fun, colorful and creative play space with education, creativity, fun and of course safety designed into every aspect, for those playful infants up to preschoolers.

Lap babies and crawlers can explore their curiosity with their plush alcove just for them.  They can enjoy the age-appropriate toys without the older kids around them.  It's just for them!

The older kids won't be too far away though, and always able to be in the sight of parents as the build, read, climb, bounce, color, create, and use their imagination.  Playing, creating and learning with imagination, touch, feel and sound all develop those key factors that are important with the kids growing up happy and healthy, and they can do it in an environment that's fun, safe and clean.

In addition to the all-day, daily open play, the center offer a calendar FULL of special events for not just the kids, but for the adults too!  From the beneficial toddler yoga, to the expressive baby ballet, as well as weekly story time where kids can get lost in a world of characters and fantasy.

The first Thursday of the month at 10am is musical story time (and it's free with a drop-in play admission!).  This is geared towards kids up to 4 years of age, and is 30 minutes of songs, dances, and instrument play-alongs!

Of course, what would a birthday be without fun and imagination!  Purple Monkey Playroom offer full service party packages so they can help make any birthday as perfect as they can for you!

Happy playing! We can't wait to hear about what you have been imagining!
