Instead, William pretended to squirt the ketchup on Ramona. Which elicited a tiny giggle out of Ramona... which quickly grew into a belly laugh. Soon William was belly laughing, too.

Research shows that play improves socialization and teaches fundamental learning concepts that directly impact their success in school. The more kids play in environments like ours, the more likely they are to succeed in academics—and life. That's why we provide access to everyone in our community, regardless of ability to pay. Our members and donors understand that every child deserves a level "playing" fi eld. And ours is always open.
