The Playroom at LoMastro is an indoor playground and community gathering space offering: open play, enrichment classes, PlayWorking (co-working + enrichment), camps, and parties.
The Playroom is designed to encourage active and imaginative play, all made from the highest-quality materials that are environmentally friendly and safe for children.
From Our Founder
When my son was about 2, I started visiting indoor play-spaces around the Chicagoland area. At that time I began dreaming of opening an indoor play-space close to home where parents and caregivers could play, meet new friends, and be part of a greater community. In June 2019, when my son was 5, the Playroom of my dreams finally became a reality.
I believe play-based learning is disappearing from schools and that today’s kids are missing out on the valuable lessons learned through play. The Playroom at LoMastro aims to remedy that. Engaging in dramatic play such as playing market—selling fruits and vegetables—provides interactions that develop social and problem solving skills. Sadly, these days, kids are more likely found sitting behind a screen.
We all know that healthy, active play is good for children's development. I am thrilled to share the play-space of my dreams with families in our community!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I am so thrilled with every aspect of the playroom at LoMastro! Loren and her phenomenal team have created such a special place, with so many fun and creative activities to do, that my boys seriously never want to leave! I know my kids are not only getting plenty of physical activity while there, but they are also able to tap into their artistic and creative side, while learning new things every step of the way! I also feel confident that they are in the hands of caring professionals who they absolutely love! And as a bonus there is a space for me to stay and work if I want to! I'm so grateful to have such an amazing place for my boys to play and learn!
