Kids On 12th began in 2007 when partner, Sharon Hershman was desperately searching for physical activities for her young, very active preschooler in the winter. All that was available at the time was the McDonald's Playroom! He was placed in three different preschools in the hopes of finding the right fit for his learning style and personality. Frustrated and sad for her son who kept getting time outs for being unable to sit still all day and nap for two hours, Sharon decided to create a place for kids like him, even if it was too late for his preschool years.
Kids On 12th has grown and changed over time and adapted to the needs of more and more active and creative kids and families looking for alternative care for their kids.
