Come play with us at the Chicago Parent Playdate

We all need to get out of the house and let the kids stretch those muscles. And we have one of the best places to do that with your entire family: Our Chicago Parent Playdate at the Accelerated Center April 26.

Chicago Parent Playdate

  • 10 a.m.-4 p.m. April 26
  • The Accelerated Center, 1900 Old Willow Road, Northbrook
  • Admission: kids 2-14; free under 2 and adults. Maximum fee per family. Tickets at the door.
  • to buy tickets and complete the waiver form

Fun is planned at every turn throughout the day, as well as non-stop entertainment on the stage and information we parents need to keep the fun and learning happening all year round.

Because we know the ‘I’m bored’ whines can get super annoying, we created this playdate so that everyone (yes, parents included) has a great time.

You can feel good about making a difference, too, because a portion of the proceeds benefits Bernie’s Book Bank. Families also are asked to be part of a giant book collection effort planned for that day.

“We strive to be an organization where individuals, families and organizations can make a meaningful difference in the lives of children,” says Jill Rosenberg, director of communications and marketing at Bernie’s.

“We hope each family will take advantage of the opportunity to plug into our goal of providing books for a better life at this fun-filled event.”

So put the kids to work collecting their outgrown books.

It’s a win all around: You’ll have cleaner shelves, you get a day of activity and you’ll be helping others.
