Like a firework show, children's playtime is a colorful, chaotic blast that, if not properly supervised, can veer into nearby cookie factories. Play with the help of a pro with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a four-hour childcare service during Parents' Night Out at Googols of Learning (a $25 value) in Lawrence.
The Parents' Night Out at Googols gifts tots free rein of the childcare facilities for four hours of parent-free supervision on various Saturday evenings, generally twice per month. Starting at 6 p.m., parental units relinquish children into the trusted and watchful care of Googols’ patient and well-practiced staff. Potty-trained guests age 3–12 can scramble around the indoor climbing structure, learn about nature in the kid-friendly science museum, and conduct Socratic seminars on cooties in the outdoor playground. Rampaging play-timers refuel with a slice of pizza and a drink before winding down with fistfuls of popcorn and a movie before pickup at 10 p.m., when relaxed parents and worn-out kids reunite for a well-deserved bedtime.
