  • Never Grow Up
    One October day in 2013, a stay-at-home mom had a bright idea while sitting in her kitchen. She envisioned opening a space for creative play?a place where children could learn, explore, and socialize. In July 2014, she made that dream into a reality by opening Never Grow Up, a play center outfitted with plush toys, mural-decorated walls, and playhouses in which kids can pretend they're tackling household tasks like preparing an all-candy dinner. The center's caregivers lead story-time gatherings and guide kids through art projects, or parents can reserve the space for birthday parties.
