Update: We continue to come here. As the kiddos get older, they enjoy exploring new areas. The staff is always amazing, and I meet a lot of nice moms and nannies. This place is amazing! An interactive, clean, and stimulating place to bring the kiddos. My two toddlers had a wonderful time.

We are so lucky to have this space in our "backyard" of Durham! We have been here for open play sessions, and we go to weekly Tots & Twos classes with our now one year-old daughter. Kate puts such thought into the various theme activities (fall: leaf wind tunnel, felt stick board of acorns/trees/pumpkins; 1 yr birthday anniversary: magnet fishes, light up cube Magne-tiles) and stations, and such care is maintained in keeping a safe, clean, accommodating environment for children and families.

My 16 month old LOVES the Wonder Lab, and so do I! Every toy is thoughtfully chosen and laid out to create a fun and engaging space for little ones to explore! If you need 90 minutes where you can watch your child happily play and relax with a hot cup of coffee, you need the Wonder Lab!

Wonderful STEM space for young kids! I love bringing my youngest here (age 1.5) to play when we're looking for a morning activity. It's locally owned by a super sweet couple with two kids of their own. The space is the perfect size to not lose your kids, and they provide free coffee and tea for parents which is an added bonus! They also play relaxing background music and overall it's just always an enjoyable experience. Highly recommend checking it out.

Hosted a birthday party for our two year old. It was so lovely and perfect for all her friends. The open space made it easy to keep an eye on the kids without having to stay two steps behind them. We brought our own food and the staff was so helpful, friendly, and relaxed. Easiest party I’ve ever planned. 10/10 would recommend

We are loving Wonder Lab so much! As a toddler parent, it’s such a gift to have a wonderful (and air conditioned!) space near us in Durham for playdates and adventure. Online booking is easy and our kiddo has a blast every time!!

Such a fun spot to bring your little ones! I love all of the opportunities to learn through play that they provide. My daughter always has a blast. We attended a class before as well, and it was so well planned and executed with lots for the kids to do. We love The Wonder Lab!
