  • Introducing New Monthly Play Kits

  • The Playhouse is creating monthly play kits for families to enjoy at home. These Play Kits are a love letter from The Children’s Playhouse to all the families we cannot see in person during the Covid 19 Pandemic. Our child development experts have designed a big bunch of quality, age-appropriate hands-on activities for 2-6 year olds and we’ve packed them up with all the materials you’ll need to complete the projects. There is a new kit every month, so check back often! Click here for more information and to sign up to receive a kit. 

    New! STEAM Kits for ages 6 and up! Engineering! Chemistry! More!  Click here to find out about our 4 new Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) kits to boggle your big kids’ brains this summer.

    Thank you, playhouse kits!” –Parent

  • Resources for talking to your child about racism

  • The Children’s Playhouse is committed to helping make our community safe and supportive for every family so that all children can grow and flourish. We are very lucky to have Dr. Tiffany Christian helping us develop empathy and anti-racism activities and resources for our monthly play kits. Stay tuned for a community story series featuring High Country parents sharing diverse stories and perspectives which will debut on our YouTube channel later this month.
