Now located on the first floor of Courts Plus, the new and improved Kids Plus childcare center boasts unique opportunities for creative play. With a stage for kids to host dramatic performances, dance, or just play, there's no doubt as to the centerpiece of the new space. The new Kids Plus offers dedicated areas for play and "work," with a quiet library room for the older kids featuring a computer and loads of books, thanks to a donation from the Elmhurst Public Library. There's also a separate playroom featuring a climb-on alligator toy, mats, and cubbies, as well as a separate area with play kitchen and ball pit.
According to Kids Plus Supervisor Carolyn Kelley, "We're really accenting dramatic play - we have a stage, we have room for gross motor play. We also have a quiet library for homework for the older children, and we encourage art - we have "messy areas" devoted to paint, playdough, and clay. We truly have something for everyone."
