Kidology Introduces Therapeutic Play for Your Child at Their New Playspace
Learn about Bucks County's newest playspace, therapy center, and birthday party venue all-in-one!
At Kidology, their number one goal is to help every child reach their developing milestones and that goal just got a lot more fun!
From Speech Therapy to Behavior Services; Physical Therapy to Occupational Therapy, Kidology is a Special Education School with locations both in Philadelphia and Bucks County that offers a wide range of interventions for children who require extra support in their early years. And now, those services are boasted by an all new, state-of-the-art facility, their new Playspace at their Southampton location, which opened to the public on May 1, 2023.
“We’re in this business to help families help their children succeed and we’re happy to also offer them a happy and safe place for them to go connect and play together,” says Luba Patlakh Kaplun, Director and Head Speech-Language Pathologist at Kidology.
The Southampton Playspace
Located at 928 Jaymor Road, Unit C-150, in the same building that houses their administrative and clinic spaces, Kidology’s Southampton Playspace is a unique indoor pediatric sensory gym built with a purpose.
Luba says they worked with a manufacturer that helped “to incorporate the best tools for children on a global spectrum of needs.” Some of these features include padded stairs, various slides, a trampoline, a soft play mommy and me carousel, and a giant ball pit.
While children attending the school for services are welcome to receive their therapy in the Playspace, Luba says the space is first and foremost, available to the public and encourages parents to come in for a free tour of the facility.
“You can come here with your children for open play any day of the week, Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.” said Luba, adding that children who receive therapy at their school can also receive therapy in the Playspace if they choose. Parents can simply walk in with their children, sign a waiver, and get to playing!
What You’ll Find in the Playspace
“We have so many exciting activities for the kids. They can go on two different types of slides; jump around in the jungle gym itself, climbing, getting to different areas of the jungle gym; they can swim in the ball pit. We have a trampoline – we have a lot of talented kids come, they do flips and dives,” says Luba.
The Playspace also features a tiny town, complete with a restaurant, a police station and a fire station where children can dress up in costumes, play make believe and save the day!
Additionally, the Playspace will feature themed events and sensory activities, like kinetic sand, for kids to interact with.
Designed for children ages 0 through 8, their Open Play pass includes 3 hours of play for only $14.50. Kids ages 1 and under are free with a sibling and $7.50 without. “Playgrounds and indoor play spaces are some of our favorite things around here, and this one was definitely a hit. This new play space is definitely worth checking out. It’s bright, clean and cheerful with activities that kids that like both physical and imaginative play would enjoy,” said parent and local blogger Michelle Reese.
Birthday Parties in the Playspace
