At GiGi’s Playhouse, all ages are welcome, from pre-natal to adults. The positive and uplifting environment of GiGi’s Playhouse Madison will empower those with Down syndrome and their families to reach their highest potential. GiGi’s Playhouse’s custom, research-based curriculum works towards advancing literacy, math skills, gross and fine motor skills, improving low muscle tone, building self-esteem, preparing for the workforce and more while fostering acceptance, awareness and networking resources for parents, siblings and the community. All programs are FREE of charge: cost will not be a barrier to achievement!
GiGi’s Playhouse offers more than 30 therapeutic and educational programs that advance literacy, math skills, fine and gross motor skills and more; all of which are free of charge.
GiGi’s Playhouse serves infants through adults, and programs are created by professional therapists and teachers who generously donate their time and expertise. All programs are based on learning styles specific to Down syndrome, and customized to ensure individual success. GiGi’s Playhouse is headquartered in Hoffman Estates, IL; with nearly 30 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, all our programs are free. We will never let cost deter our families from participation or impede the achievement of children and adults with Down syndrome.
