We will be showing a movie in the party room for the kids--PLEASE send a sack dinner and/or snack for them to eat during the event. We will also have all the same fun Kids Play Gym activities and staff and volunteers (all background-checked) who are all excited to play!
If your child wears diapers, please send diapers and wipes for them. We also encourage you to send a change of clothes and a drink/bottle for them.
We have a small intake form just to make sure we know a little bit about your kiddo and their needs. The intake form can be found athttps://drive.google.com/file/d/1wgZ22RlEbdQm3Aya2tihciZts6Rn0hxN/view?usp=sharing or e-mail email@example.com to request a copy of the intake form.

Your spot will be reserved once you have completed your intake and bought your ticket. We will have limited spots, so we encourage you to reserve your spot as soon as possible.

We are so excited to be turning one and we want to throw a birthday party for EVERY kid to celebrate and join in the fun! We will be celebrating Gus (our caterpillar/mascot)'s birthday--but much more than that we will be celebrating the amazing year that it's been and the wonderful way we have been welcomed into the Bloomington community.
This will be an all-day party with various additional activities TBA
We will also have lots of wonderful birthday goodies, including snacks (and birthday sweets!) in the party room for approximately two hours around lunchtime (will announce the time and menu as the day gets closer) and non-edible goodie bags for kiddos as they last. If you represent an organization that is interested in donating non-edible OR edible goodies or being involved in any other way, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
You are also welcome to bring a gift and/or diapers that will be donated to local charitable organizations!
This will also be a big sale event to celebrate! The sale will last all day, 9AM-7PM, in-person only. Everything will be on sale, including not just day-of admission but also multi-passes, monthlies, party rentals, and more!
Survey to help develop and schedule a parent support group we are doing in collaboration with multiple other amazing Monroe County organizations and professionals.
Although we take a lot of pride in always being inclusive and sensory-friendly, we wanted to have a special night every week that specifically celebrates kids in the community with disabilities and still open for the general public as well.
Although some of our equipment does have weight and size restraints and we are typically geared towards kids 10 and under, we feel that there are some activities here that would benefit older kids with disabilities and sensory processing difficulties. Therefore, on Wednesdays from 3pm-7pm we will up our age limit to kids 15 and under for this one night every week.
