The Power of Play
The power of play is at the foundation of a child’s ability to learn and grow. Research proves that kids who get opportunities for experimental play have better social skills, improved literacy, reduced stress and increased success in life.
That’s why the Junior League of Peoria and Peoria Zoological Society have joined forces to build the Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum and expand Peoria Zoo—creating a daylong destination for learning through play that equips local kids with the tools to succeed.
Please help us raise $8 million to bring to life this daylong destination for learning through play.
