NEW Discovery Town Addition
Dive into our immersive play town featuring a vet clinic, the rainbow cafe, the Growing Up garden center, a postal station and our newest addition: a newborn nursery!
Join us for the ribbon cutting of our newest Discovery Town addition on Saturday, July 10: Grandma Kay‘s Wee Care offers kids learning opportunities in the health profession through a real woman of STEM. The newborn nursery was built through a memorial gift honoring Kay Parker, who had a long career in Nursing from Surgical Nurse to Director or Surgery and Director of Nursing at St. Mary's. Her story is told through the IF/THEN gender initiative, showcasing women and girls of science and the ribbon cutting will be accompanied by an afternoon with activities around health careers.
