Ladue Early Childhood Center Open Play

Ladue Early Childhood Center at 10890 Ladue Rd, Creve Coeur, MO 63141img_7488

I know what you are thinking…this will be just another preschool room that has toys for the kids to play! Man, oh man, that is so far from the truth! This place blew me away! And guess what…its FREE!!!

From 9:30a – 10:30a on select Friday mornings, residents and non-residents of the Ladue School District can attend the Ladue Early Childhood Center open play session, in their “Big Room” and the open gym! Walkers to 4 years of age are welcome.  However, the first time we visited, Owen was not walking and he was able to play at the water table and in the Cozy Coupe car and had a blast!

The “Big Room” is amazing!!! There is a large tree house with two levels.  The upstairs has a slide, a bridge, a rock climber wall, an area to play house complete with a doorbell, a farm trucks/tractor table and a school-house.


Downstairs features a fire truck, tunnel, another area to play house with a second doorbell, a dress up area and a ballet bar with a mirror.  Plus all of the areas have lights and light switches where the little ones love to experiment.

Additionally in the “Big Room” is a large water table. It is a big hit with my boys…but be sure to bring a change of clothes if your littles are like mine and don’t like to wear water smocks!


The kids also have access to the open gymnasium which has almost every gross motor ride on toy you can think of! From tricycles (including some for a passenger to sit), Cozy Coupes, Sit Down Scooters, Basketball hoops and ride-on Caterpillars.

There are also balls of all kinds, bean bags,  squash balls, cones to make obstacle courses, the list goes on!


We love this place and try to make it as often as possible!
