What is the Tree House?

The Tree House Indoor Playground is an exploration space for children ages 0 through 4 and their parents/caregivers. With a designated infant space, a climbing wall, a tire swing, and other general play areas, The Tree House has plenty of developmentally appropriate spaces for your child’s developing mind. For more information call 906-482-9363.

The magic number to graduate from KFRC programming.

Why 5? While we know it may be not be convenient for families with older children to attend Playgroups or the Tree House, there is a big difference in the way a 5-year-old plays and the way a toddler plays. And while we do wish we could be everything to everybody, the KFRC is committed to establishing and enforcing best practices for early child development in our programs.
