Open to both residents and non-residents, the center offes extended hours to suit the needs of busy working parents, and is open 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Designed to be exceptionally child-friendly, the center is unusually bright, airy and spacious, with an abundance of windows, including a round window and towers. Its facade will eventually be accented with bright] primary colors and geometric shapes.

According to its executive director, Barbara Gigante, "Celebration for Kids" will provide a wam, nurturing, environment where children will thrive socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically. Special features include a full kitchen located on each of three floors, where even two-year-olds learn how to make pudding and jello, and a gym with climbing equipment and a tent with tunnels.
