Re-opening Date

Our first day to accept people in our storefront again is June 7th, 2020. We have changed a few things in the way we operate and wanted to update our community.

  • Reservation to Play: Starting June 7th, we are opening our doors by appointment only. You must go on our website to reserve your time to come into our facility. Each time slot is limited to allow room for social distancing and we will not allow drops-in if slots are filled. Please make sure to reserve you time here: https://imagine-play.square.site/reservations.
  • Toy Library: If you are not ready to go out and are looking to find items to keep your child(ren) engaged at home you can check out our toy library memberships. You can borrow age appropriate toys directly from us, play with them for a week and return it. Our toy library catalog and information can be found here: https://imagine-play.square.site/toy-library
  • Summer Camps:  We have several themed camps coming up starting the week of June 22nd. Camps as from 9:30am – 12:30pm. We are limiting spots to these camps as well, with a few them almost sold out. Please see more information to register to these camps here: https://imagine-play.square.site/summer-art-camp

Please note, at this moment we are not taking any new birthday parties until social gatherings guidelines are approved by the state.

We can’t wait to see you in soon.

Phase 3

As you may know by now CA has set a four phase reopening plan. We are on phase 3 of this plan, of which the governor  has mention can be months away.

For Imagine Play, this means that you will not see our doors re-open for our normal services such as Open Play, Special Events or Birthday Parties until late August, possible September.  We hope that CA can move through Phase 2 quickly, but we want to be conservative on their timeline.

Please note, at this time memberships will get an extension for however many months we are mandated to remain closed. Special events that are postponed will get a credit for future service. Birthday parties are able to be rescheduled or received a credit for the future.

We are hopeful of maybe providing other services outside of our normal scope if and when CA gives permission such as summer camps. We do have some other special announcements we are working on and hope to have an update soon.

Otherwise, you can help us now by purchasing items from our website such as Art Kits and Grad Gifts. https://imagine-play.square.site/

Or you can donate to us here: https://checkout.square.site/pay/8f3ada847ea74dd8aa17f6fc53765dbc

 

Special Event Updates

We had several awesome Easter events that had to be postponed during the State’s shelter in place. The dates have been reschedule twice with the last time being a conservative timeframe of end of May, but re-opening date is unclear with many counties extending their quarantine date to later in May.

All events will be rescheduled, but unfortunately at this moment we cannot give an exact date until the government gives us a definite opening time frame. Again, any monies paid to us will get credit for the future event date. If you cannot attend the date you can use your credit towards open play. Credit is given automatically under the customer profile of which you bought  your ticket.

Whenever we get the green light to open our doors again and we have a date for our events an email will be sent to all ticket holders. Thank you for your understanding. We hope to have more information soon.
