Inside, padded play-space for older toddlers:  The Mt Airy Parent Advisory Committee is asking parents to support Childspace through its “Buy a Tile” campaign, through which we will create a cushioned, resilient foam floor for an inside play space.  Each tile costs $25.  Please consider purchasing a tile and helping to create a fun, gross motor play space for older toddlers at Childspace.
