Gym Activities designed for ages 1-5 will be available for use as well as our inflatable bounce house.  This is a great opportunity to network with other preschool parents in the community, while giving your child time to build key motor and social skills with other children their age.   Parents and preschoolers can burn off steam during unstructured playtime.
