The Little Treehouse, named the Best Kids’ Party Venue in 2010 by Philadelphia magazine, welcomes parents and their youngsters to dynamic Mommy and Me classes amid a colorful playground of wooden toys and tot-friendly wonders. Choose one of four types of 45-minute classes—gymnastics, music and movement, dance, or yoga—that ready tykes and their parents for cutthroat living-room talent shows. Among a bevy of membership perks, enrolled kiddos receive free playtime in the multihued environs. While parents sip on fair-trade coffee, children surf down slides, conduct small wooden trains under pastel clouds of hanging mobiles, and stack blocks on wooden ferris wheels under the watchful eyes of parents and the U.S. Playmaster General.
The Little Treehouse
Children crawl, climb, and careen through The Little Treehouse's sprawling wonderland, pausing only to dine with their parents at a café that Main Line Today named one of 2011's Best Restaurants for Kids. Socked feet scale sophisticated play structures and scream sonnets into pillow piles under colorful mobiles while high-quality wooden toys sow new synapses. Guests can stretch imaginations and limbs during yoga and movement classes, somersault through tumbling classes for different age groups, and schmooze with peers during seasonal and private events. Between romping sessions, tots can don bibs for a helping of organic, sugar-free applesauce at the café, where parents sip fair-trade coffee whilst navigating free WiFi and reminiscing about the steam-powered web browsers of their youth. The kitchen is open for lunch every day and for dinner Wednesday–Sunday, filling a wholesome menu with pasta, paninis, and brick-oven pizzas wrought with whole-wheat dough and local ingredients whenever possible. In clement conditions, adults can bring a bottle of wine to the outdoor terrace to watch their children play with bubbles and write chalk prescriptions for cootie remedies.
