SkillZone is an indoor play space providing programing, date night childcare and drop in play to non-members. SkillZone is located on Barracks Row in Washington, D.C.
Skill Zone opened this past January and has been surpassing membership goals in the Capitol Hill Neighborhood of Washington, D.C.. “More and more young families are choosing DC as their home, but children’s and parent-friendly services have been slow to catch up to the growing demand,” Says Liza Fox (owner of SkillZone) adding that the population of children under 5 in DC increased 20% from 2011 to 2015. Fox was inspired to create SkillZone when she saw a need, she was finding it hard to entertain her partner’s children in their neighborhood. Thus SkillZone was born.
Ooey and I checked out SkillZone a few months ago and I had to drag her away, kicking & screaming, The business has a large open space which houses a wooden play-scape that includes tunnels, doors, a swing and climbing opportunities. Beyond that is an area for water play and a space for the littlest visitors. To the side is a separate room where events, story times and timed play happens during peak hours. And I would be remiss if I failed to mention the complimentary coffee and tea.
SkillZone is unique in that they are creating a community for parents to be a part of, while including options for drop-in play. Membership at the SkillZone guarantees that you are part of an active group which offers events such as, date night daycare, article club and lunch club to name a few. Called the Club at Skill Zone there will be an open house if perspective members would like to learn more. The open house/launch party will be on April 15th from 10am-1pm.
