Our History


The Children’s Playhouse was founded in 2002 by a group of local citizens who wanted an enriching play environment for children from birth to age eight that at the same time offered parents and caregivers friendly support in the important job of raising children. Ann Kiefert, Beth Darnell, Kathy Parham, Cathy Riggs, Beth Jacquot, Andrea Anderson, and Heidi Campbell were all members of the founding board.
