What is the Tree House?

The Tree House is an indoor playground and exploration space for children ages 0 through 4 and their parents/caregivers. In addition to general play areas, the Tree House has a designated infant space, a climbing wall, a tire swing and of course a Tree House! 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.
