PLayLab’s 2nd Location is Coming!!

We are very excited to announce that the 2nd PlayLab location is happening, and we’re coming to Eagle Rock!

More details will be forthcoming- we’re making a space that offers both indoor and outdoor play. Stay posted to watch our progress and updates; we hope to open it by late October/early November.

We hope “PlayLab Eagle Rock” will be great, and hope that you will love it, and hopefully we can keep growing and building more PlayLabs throughout Los Angeles :)

Nanny Enhancement Training- coming Sept 7

We are hosting a special training evening for nannies and caregivers who want to learn new skills to make them stand out amongst their competition! The evening will talk about RIE trainings, caregiver-focused CPR training, getting business insurance policies, and more! This will be held on September 7, from 630pm-930pm.

The event will be conducted in Spanish, with an English interpreter present.

Attention Monday Visitors!

Our main entrance (in the parking lot) is going to be closed tomorrow while the trees are trimmed. You can still park in most of our spots in the parking lot, but please enter the building through the front, on Walnut St, at the entrance circled here.

There is also 2 hour street parking on Catalina, which might be more convenient, since it’s a shorter walk.

We apologize for any inconvenience and expect the work to be finished by 3pm.

Anniversary Sale- Special Prices on Memberships, 10 Pack of Day Passes

Since we’ve turned two, in addition to our anniversary party, we decided to run two special offers:

-One is a 2 Month Membership, good for unlimited visits for 60 days for your immediate family!

Even if you already have a current PlayLab membership, or are going to be taking some trips this summer- no worries; you can activate this any time; you don’t have to use it right away. The usual price for a membership is $65 per month, but this offer is $100 ($50 per month, a total savings of $30)

-The other special is our popular 10 pack of Day Passes - now with 2 extra passes, for a total of 12 day passes!

This is also $100, which works out to about $8 per visit (a savings of about $144, compared to buying individual day passes at $12 a pop). And the passes never expire, so you can use them at your own pace.

Wondering which one to get? If you’re planning on visiting us at least 4 times a month, the membership is more cost effective. If you’re planning on visiting us less, go for the 10 pack, er, 12 pack. Oh- and don’t wait too long; this offer ends July 28th.

Order them here, and we hope to you see you at Saturday’s party!

Today, 66% of the world’s children are raised to speak two languages. The LILA Mini Club program teaches French to parents and children in a warm, loving, and supportive environment. Music and playtime activities help children in their language acquisition while parents, some of them learning alongside their children, are able to participate in discussions on their children’s development.

Come and join us at PlayLab on Thursday March 28th at 1pm.
