6 Cricket Ave., Ardmore
109 N. High St., West Chester
Lulu’s Casita is much more than an indoor oasis for the children of Ardmore, West Chester, and the surrounding neighborhoods. They offer bilingual story times and host BYOB Pizza night, a favorite of kids and parents alike (check their website for schedule and availability). Children love swimming in the ball pit, building forts, and letting their imaginations run rampant amongst the different scenes laid out for them. Lulu’s also offers birthday fiestas and hosts other classes throughout the month — check their calendar for updates!
4627 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square
This family owned and operated play center opened in the fall of 2018 and has quickly become a local favorite. Children learn through play by exploring art, music, movement, touching, observing and playing side by side with other children. They also offer birthday party packages.
35 Lacrue Ave, Glen Mills
The little ones and the big kids can all find something to do at Oasis! A soft playground and their “ballocity arena” are great for the younger kids, and the older ones will love the virtual reality, laser maze, rock climbing wall, and more!
300 W. Baltimore Ave, Media
Media’s Toddler Town is a drop in play place for children ages 6 months up to 5 years. Their focus is on providing a social atmosphere for children to play and interact, as well as serving as a meeting spot for local families to meet new friends. Monthly memberships are available!
