This all started when
A pair of loving parents who set out to create a fun and educational indoor play lab for their two children and the Ballard neighborhood families. The goal of our play lab is to be a “HECk of A play space” for your young children.
"Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength," according to the AAP report. It allows children to explore the world, practice adult roles, and gain confidence. And it improves children's social skills as well, by helping them to "learn how to work in groups, to share, to negotiate, to resolve conflicts, and to learn self-advocacy skills." (Parents Magazine)
We at HECA Play Lab truly believe in learning through play. HECA Play Lab’s basic focus is children's play and fitness for 2 to 8 year old children. At HECA Play Lab, these activities have been packaged into a safe, clean, climate-controlled, supervised environment for children aged 8 and under to exercise and have fun while stimulating their imagination and challenging them physically.
HECA Play Lab was created based on the premise that if you set a large number of children inside a safe, yet challenging, imaginative playground area, they are going to have fun. They are also going to develop basic motor skills, social skills, muscle tone, and self-confidence. Furthermore, the parents can enjoy hours of close interaction with their children in a safe, secure, and stimulating environment.
