A Safe and Welcoming Place to Play We are the nation’s first (and only) independent, free of charge drop-in play space. Our goal is to level the playing field in Chicago and give children birth through 3 years old the skills they need to be school ready.
Play is the work of childhood. Children learn everything they need to know through play. Just as a neighborhood without healthy food options is known as a food desert, HelloBaby is the change agent in areas rife with play deserts.
