About Kids Town
Kid’s Town is located in Germantown! We offer a secure keypad entry system and five spacious and fully equipped classrooms divided by age group. A special and distinctive feature at Kid’s Town is a separate gymnasium and multi-purpose room for continued gross motor development, small group interaction and, extracurricular activities. It’s a great space to have when the kids can’t go outside because of bad weather!
Kid’s Town has more space for outdoor activities and play than most other centers in the area. We offer two spacious fenced-in playgrounds that are divided by age group and only accessible by classroom doors. Shock-absorbing protective surfacing surrounds all play structures for added safety. Adjacent to the playgrounds is a large fenced-in field where the kids play soccer, run obstacle courses, and play games and other sports!
