Universal Parenting Place

Universal Parenting Place is the second learning development pilot in Shelby County. The centers focus on the parents, empowering them to stop negative behaviors in children before they turn into serious problems, such as violence, addiction, obesity and depression. The concept of the design was a bridge between “Starbucks and the Children’s Museum”. It focuses on all child development aspects. The entire space provides opportunities for interactive learning and creative play area where parents and children can have fun. There are designated areas for interaction and one on one counselling. It’s a relaxed and yet vibrant environment with comfortable seating, creative child oriented furniture and playful structures for all children.
