Best New Space for Tots 

Lotus Bloom Child and Family Resource Center

Is there a better way to start your baby's life than fostering love for all people? Since the multicultural play space Lotus Bloom opened on Park Boulevard in March 2009, parents and nannies have been bringing their kids to play there. The organization, funded by donations, city money, and an Annie E. Casey Foundation grant, provides structured bilingual playgroups for Chinese-, Vietnamese- and Spanish-speaking families, as well as playtimes for African-American families, mirroring the neighborhood's diversity. The drop in play time is only $1 and it provides arts and crafts, singing, circle time, and a snack. It definitely gives the low-budget family a safe haven for their kids. The groups are designated multicultural playgroups, and you will find a mix of folks at this new space just down the street from the once and future Parkway Theater.
