The Children’s Playhouse serves as an informal “town square” for the High Country:  a place where natives and newcomers, out-of-towners and locals, experienced parents and eager first-timers, and people of all classes are brought together to share the joy of playful learning with their children. Stimulating arts– and science-based programs, enticing play areas and exhibits, and informative parenting resources all support this mission.Visit us at 400 Tracy Circle, Boone NC ”
