Perfect for infants up through teens, Nest’s gift boutique provides an eclectic and fun shopping experience with everything from teethers to donut-scented bath bombs!

 

Of course, we all know Nest for their wonderful playspace and classes as well. The weather in Philly isn’t perfect; wet playgrounds and too-cold days can be challenging for you and your little one during the winter season. So, when the weather refuses to cooperate- don’t stress, come to Nest! Members and non-members are always welcome to take classes and play!

 

Located in the heart of Center City, Nest is a 12,000 square foot family membership club and indoor playground for families with children newborn to 6 years old. They offer an indoor playspace, enrichment and development classes, a kids’ toy boutique, kids’ hair and nail salon (3x LOVE Award Winner!) and a snack café. This winter, join the community!

The Changing Brain Lab at UPenn

425 South University Avenue, Room 301

 

Help us study how children’s brains develop, and how they learn and think! The Changing Brain Lab at the University of Pennsylvania studies how the brain changes as people grow up and learn new things. We are also interested in developing new strategies to support optimal development and learning. At our lab, children will play cognitive games and get an MRI scan while watching a movie. They will also receive a picture of their brain! Children will practice with a fake MRI scanner before the actual MRI session. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about our research.
