At Caterpillar Kids Place, little ones tumble and explore with arts and crafts, music, and other children in an eco-friendly playground. Wee ones scoot around the play area on riding toys, soon reaching a bounce house where they safely jump skyward. Building blocks improve spatial awareness and expressive prowess, an array of costumes fosters method acting for King Lear –themed make-believe sessions, and puppets and instruments inspire impromptu plays. While tykes go nuts, parents relax in Caterpillar Kids Place's onsite lounge with complimentary coffee, WiFi access, and an audiobook archive of Cosmopolitan quizzes. Caterpillar Kids Place is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday–Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays.

Upcoming special events include Botanic Bling on December 11 & 12, hosted by Mark-Alan Harmon, and Enchanted Railroad Storytime on December 18, hosted by professional storyteller Bill Ratner.
