It is often a parent’s worst nightmare . . . it’s 3 p.m. on a snowy day in mid-February and your child hasn’t taken take their regular nap. Everyone’s a little stir-crazy. What are you going to do?
There have been many days like this for local Mequon moms and fortunately there’s a little secret in our community that is great for just such situations – the Logemann Community Family Playcenter.
Located just inside the Logemann Community Center on Mequon Road (across from Piggly Wiggly), this play area is a child’s dream-come-true. There’s something for every child’s interest. For the dramatic, there’s a mini kitchen, dress up clothing, tap shoes, baby dolls and toy strollers. For the builders, there’s Lego, wooden blocks, marble tracks and a train table. Plus, there’s a safe tot area for the pre-walkers.
For parents, there is plush seating and wifi. So while your children play, you can relax, read a magazine or check your email. For working parents, it is a great place to get things done while your children are entertained and contained.
The Logemann Community Family Playcenter was once home to Pride and Joy Preschool run by Joni Monfre. Unfortunately, Monfre was diagnosed with cancer in 2011 and had to formally close her operation. At that point, the Logemann Community Center Board of Advisors opened up the playcenter to the public. Monfre is now cancer-free and has returned to serve as the activities director. She’s an integral part of the playcenter, overseeing its day-to-day operations including birthday parties and private events.
Outside of play time, the Logemann Community Family Playcenter is home to a weekly story time with Miss Joyce and Mooshie (formerly of Next Chapter Bookstore), art classes, music time and gatherings by local nonprofits, such as the MOMS Club of Mequon. Monfre also opens up the large, main room of the center for kids to ride outdoor toys, especially during the colder, winter days. She calls it the “Running Room”, and encourages little ones to get their sillies out by running, riding toys and engaging with others.
Funding & Membership Fees
The Family Playcenter recently had a re-launch called “Say Yah to Play” to raise awareness about its amenities and need for donations. Since the center is a nonprofit, it relies soley on donations and membership dues to stay afloat. There are several ways to join.
- An annual family membership for unlimited vists costs $120 for Mequon-Thiensville residents and $150 for non-residents. You can pay upfront or opt for monthly auomatic payments to your credit card.
- Alternatively, you can “Pay As You Play” on a daily basis. Cost is $4 per child per visit for Mequon-Thiensville residents and $6 per child per visit for non-residents. Babies up to 6 months are free. There’s an easy iPad check-in system that makes paying by credit card stress-free.
Regardless of the payment option you choose, the price to play is lower than other comparable playcenters located in the North Shore area.
If you have not had the opportunity to visit this Mequon gem, do so now. Your children will love the fun activities and you’ll love the break, especially on those snowy February winter days.
