I attended a fun Open House at Monkeydoodles this past June, and my kids had a blast. They loved playing with and exploring all the exciting toys and equipment while interacting with old and new friends. Monkeydoodles has a wide variety of toys and play areas that children ages 0 to 4 years old will love!
Here are some of what you can find at Monkeydoodles Playroom:

Monkeydoodles Playroom offers Open Play Sessions throughout the week. The hours vary and days may vary each month. During open play, children (with adult supervision) are allowed to have fun exploring their environment. While exploring, kids learn their likes and dislikes as well as how to problem solve. They also learn to interact with peers and make new friends! Open play is a great way to spend a rainy day with your kids! Sessions only cost $10 for the first child then $8 per sibling. It is only $5 when you are currently enrolled in classes.
Monkeydoodles Playroom also offers a variety of classes for babies through kids ages 4 years old. Engaging in classes introduces kids to a structured learning environment. It allows children to work on their listening, focus and concentration skills. Classes also allow for family bonding as many are mommy and me based.
At Monkeydoodles Playroom, families can also enjoy fun and exciting events! These include: Mom’s Night Out, Pizza and a Movie, Pirate Party and more. Monkeydoodles also holds special classes and seminars for parents from local professionals. The staff at Monkeydoodles is dedicated to helping children and parents grow, learn and succeed. Through their programs and events, kids can develop into healthy and happy children!
