Helmed by a professional chef who intimately understands the stressful demands of being a wife and mother, Dinner Fairy takes cooking off parents’ already stacked to-do lists by delivering ready-to- eat meals right to their doorsteps.

The goal of every KidsTown Drop-In Child Care Center is to provide quality, licensed care to children, so they may have a safe and secure place to visit that's also fun, exciting, and entertaining. KidsTowns offers a flexible preschool schedule and curriculum, qualified staff tailors each day's lessons to those in attendance to create a more flexible preschool program. Here, children have the opportunity to learn new skills, play with different toys, participate in group games, create art projects, and interact socially with other children. Activities are scheduled throughout the day to encourage learning in new areas, while also providing social, physical, and cognitive development opportunities.

To further accommodate parents, some centers offer themed Saturday-evening sessions that keep children entertained at night, so adults may get away.
