Our History

The center was started in the 1970’s by caring neighborhood parents wanting a safe, supervised and structured place for their kids to go to after school. Since then it has grown into a wonderful place for kids to play, grow and succeed by using the experiences and practices of positive play. The center is open to kids ages five to eighteen.
