We have filled our center with activities that engage the children's imagination, encourage teamwork and stimulate their natural curiosity to understand and explore the world around them. 

Our Vision

The overall picture is happy and healthy families. Parents getting back into the work force and finding and sustaining employment. For parents to recover after the covid-19 pandemic, to provide those of low income, single parent households, those households of the black community with a safe haven for children and a place where parents can get back on their feet. 

 

The 5 solution that Mommy's Imagination Stands by is to let every child's imagination run wild.  And to ensure that parents are proactively participating to engage in parent to child bonding time. Fatigue associated with working and raising a child independently contributes to parenting difficulties. Single parents are likely to have less time for a social life or other activities, intensifying feelings of isolation and negatively impacting mental health. When the increased burdens of single parenting are associated with exhaustion, isolation, and depression, the evolution of developmental and behavioral problems in the child is more likely. More resources for mothers mean, income for households, less stress on the mother. In which happy children make a better world! Parents with a better support system for themselves and their children make a better and safer homes. Our aim is to ensure that creative and healthy concepts make children feel happy and good, so they can be themselves.

About Us

Our Story

Mommy's Imagination Station INC

Established on FEBRUARY 04, 2020

MOMMY'S IMAGINATION STATION INC is a NON-PROFIT 501C3 ORGANIZATION.  Founded by TASHANNA HALL, PRESIDENT. Our mission has always been to provide a fun and safe environment for families to interact with their kids in a clean and healthy indoor facility. ALL of our board members have children of all ages. This makes it easier for us to stay current with our clientele’s needs.  We want to provide the best experience to your families as we would with ours!

"Being a child means laughing, exploring, playing, living in a never-ending fantasy, their wild and carefree imagination, having self-confidence, respect, being creative, honest and above all unbiased. At this young age, millions of connections are made in the brain that will define the rest of children's lives which starts with infancy to 8 years old. Parents need more resources and a support system. Parents need to keep up on socialization skills and understand that they're not alone that there is someone out there just like them, tired, lonely, needing a break, confused, feeling stuck, unsure, battling the covid -19 pandemic, and a number relateable issue when schools re closed due to the pandemic, etc.  However, we want parents to also have a safe place to relax and unwind, that they also deserve!"
