Our Broward County community is experiencing some amazing things happening at our favorite kid’s play places!
Answering families’ search for more activities that stimulate and promote development: academic, social, physical, communication and language, we have put together a list of the best, local places that are all-in-one for the children. These locations open their doors for open play each day and offer easy-peasy birthday parties that will knock the kid’s socks off! Throughout the week, families are filling-up classes that foster the important pre-Kindergarten skills of participating in a group and following directions, embracing routines and learning classroom expectations, while building self-confidence and abilities.
It all sounds amazing because it IS amazing! As parents, we are laying the foundation for our child’s current and future learning experiences during these fundamental years and there are some amazing places taking the lead in providing inclusive locations to build that foundation.

Offering Mommy and Me Classes, Music and Art Series, organized Playgroups, or Craft-It Tuesdays, there is always an added-value opportunity to come visit WRTS in Davie. Your kids will not believe their eyes when they see the zip line, trampoline and self-propelled equipment to turn the kid’s busy energy into developmental play! The children will refine their fine-motor, focus and visual-perceptive skills while at play in the activity center, where they keep Melissa & Doug dress-up costumes, puzzles and games and desirable things-to-do, such as glitter tattoos, coloring and chalk drawing on the giant chalkboard!
Power down in the sensory corner with a quiet space to read or relax and reboot by taking a ride in the calming swings. Classes are held throughout the week (including evenings) for children of all ages and abilities and parent/ family focused events hit the calendars each month as WRTS – Davie supports the child and family as a whole!

Broward County Library Main Branch
A more recent favorite of families across Broward County is our downtown library, which is research-rich and is steadily expanding it’s children’s programs, bringing the branch to be the most popular among local residents. The Active Learning Center has become a staple environment for families since it’s opening in May 2017 and is open during similar hours as the rest of the library, only closing an hour earlier. Our Broward County Library is at the forefront of technology with it’s Creation Stations and Veteran’s Hotspots (to name a few) and was named “Library of the Year” in 1996 and in 2015.
Events and activities are held throughout the week, including multiple storytimes for early childhood age groups (siblings are welcome to join), LEGO and STEM activities for elementary-aged children, and book clubs and technology meetups for teenagers and young adults. The Active Learning Center hosts Mommy ‘n Me Playgroup on Thursdays and Fridays and has become a central meetup location for families with young children.
