gift cards

The Best Gift. Ever.

Shopping for a friend? Would you like to give something to a kind neighbor, new parent or your partner?  There is no better gift to a parent of an infant, toddler or preschooler than the gift of play. 

For the next birthday party, baby shower or just for fun gift, consider a gift card to Recess. 

Some fun gift card ideas:

  • A newborn membership ($50 registration fee, gives unlimited visits until the child reaches 6 months)
  • A fitness class with Childcare ($35)
  • A year-long Mini Membership ($390)
  • CPR workshop ($50-75)
  • Playspace Pass ($20-40)
  • A dollar amount and they can use it how they'd like!
