The Children's Indoor Play Society is a non-profit organization (35 years running!) created by Moms and Dads to give preschool kids a place to play and interact during the long winter months. It is run by a board of directors chosen by election from the general membership.
CHIPS is a parent supervised playgroup. There are a variety of toys, bikes, slides and climbing structures, blocks and parties. Your child can move from one area to another freely. It is a safe, fun environment for burning off lots of kid energy!
