Welcome to Kids Garden

Where creative play is the highlight of every day

Work to get done? Shopping to do? Last minute meeting or lunch? Bring your young ones to Kids Garden, a flexible drop-in learning center for children as young as 12 months (and walking).

Parents love our playcare centers because they’re safe, clean and green. Kids love us because we’re fun. With highly experienced teachers to help your child make the most of each moment, you can rest assured they’ll be in great hands. Depending on the time and day, guests will enjoy educational games, storytelling, kids yoga, arts and crafts, LEGO building and much more.

How it all began

Maren first had the idea for Kids Garden when she set out to find a secure, stimulating, nurturing childcare environment for her son—one that didn’t require cumbersome contracts or hefty monthly fees.

It didn’t exist. So she created it.

Putting her Masters in Education and holistic health degrees to work, Maren built an all-new playcare from the ground up. She designed it for the children, of course: a magical, whimsical place where young minds could explore what it means to be a kid. But she made parents a priority, too, by providing plenty of flexible options so they could drop in as needed.

After years of traveling the world, hiking her way through national parks, farming, teaching and entrepreneuring, Maren is putting her vast array of skills to work for the people who matter most in our communities—the little ones. Today, the original seeds of Kids Garden have blossomed into a thriving, growing community with numerous locations and more on the way…and an open door policy for parents and family in need of a safe, educational playspace where kids are excited to be.

What Makes Kids Garden Different?

Kids Garden is not your typical childcare or daycare facility. Eco-friendly and fun, our flexible drop-in learning centers are designed to help parents make the most of every moment—even during those times when you need an hour or more without the kids. Here’s what makes Kids Garden different:

Creative Learning

We believe kids learn best through play, and have designed a learning center for just that.

Experienced Childcare Providers

Kids Garden is staffed by teachers who have degrees in early childhood education as well as mothers and former nannies. We love kids! And we’re here to make sure they’re loved and cared for while you’re away.

Safe and Secure

Drop your child off any time knowing he or she will be in good hands. Our childcare educational center is secured with a keypad entrance, and we require picture IDs for pickup. Our childcare providers have all been thoroughly screened and are certified in CPR and first aid.


At Kids Garden, everything we do is guided by green practices — from non-toxic art supplies to eco-friendly cleaning products — all so your children can explore their creative side in a healthy, safe learning environment.

Organic Meals and Snacks

All food served at Kids Garden is wholesome, nutritious and peanut-free. We work with local partners including Whole Foods when ordering meals, and hand select healthy snack options.

Don’t just take our word for it

See what parents are saying:

My son absolutely loves the time he spends at Kids Garden! The teachers are wonderful and I am super impressed with the activities and curriculum they use. They are such a lifesaver for us!


I can not say enough about our love for Kids Garden. The kids always leave joyful and with so many fun stories about their day. The environment is safe, fun and full of activities that keep them thinking and creative. 


If I need to go to a doctors appointment or do anything without having to have two kids attached to me, I can drop them off there and know that they will have a great time in a clean and friendly environment. My oldest just started the preschool program and she absolutely loves it.
