Toddlers and Kids on a Mission and Gigi's Playhouse families will gather for friendship-making and an exploratory music lesson lead by Ms. Kristen from Music Together North Shore. Afterwards, families are welcome to continue to play at the playhouse. Full details and registration below but please take a moment to read a little about Gigi's Playhouse and their wonderful achievements (from their website):
GiGi’s Playhouse is a one-of-a-kind achievement center for individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community. GiGi’s Playhouse offers more than 30 therapeutic and educational programs that advance literacy, math skills, motor skills and more; all of which are free of charge.
Programs are created by professional therapists and teachers who generously donate their time and expertise. All programs are based on best practices for learning styles specific to Down syndrome, and customized to ensure individual success. GiGi’s Playhouse serves infants through adults. GiGi’s Playhouse is headquartered in Hoffman Estates, IL; with 22 locations throughout the United States and Mexico, with more opening soon.
GiGi’s Playhouse makes a difference every day. Our unique points of difference empower individuals and their parents to achieve their greatest potential with confidence, independence, and joy. We have a “place”: we will never let location be a barrier to success. We have “programs”: we will never let curriculum be a boundary to achievement. Most importantly, programs are free. We will never let cost deter our families from participation or impede the achievement of our children and adults.
PURPOSE: Children will have a chance to learn about music and get some of that pent up winter energy out in a fun and playful environment while meeting new friends that they otherwise might not have known.
IMPACT: Families will get to experience an amazing and effective agency in our Milwaukee community. Our children will meet role models working to enhance life for families that have a loved one with Down Syndrome. Families will get a chance to make new connections and raise their awareness.
REGISTRATION: Event is now full. We will gather for another Musical Playdate at GiGi's on March 11 (registration begins March 4)
CANCELLATIONS: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unable to make it so we can invite another family to share in the experience.
PARTICIPANT CAP: 10 families
AGES: Best for birth-5 but older siblings are welcome to attend
