WeVillage: Los Angeles' Grand Opening!

On March 18th, we opened the doors to our first California location in Sherman Oaks! After months of preparing the building to fit the WeVillage center standard of being able to stimulate children’s senses through colors, design, and of course being able to integrate indoor play spots, we were able to finally show it off!

We had a wonderful time with all of our guests! Not only did we have kids having fun playing with some of the structures, we had a wonderful spread of food for both kids and adults! It was a perfect day to capture just what WeVillage is: colorful, fun, and just where kids want to be.

We even had our own star-studded red carpet! Selma Blair, Jerry O'Connell, Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price, and Julie Bowen were among those who attended to support WeVillage.

Our founder Karen felt right at home, returning back to California after having lived in Oregon and establishing four WeVillage centers. Upon moving to Oregon, she struggled with finding a childcare that she felt comfortable with leaving her son at when she needed to get away for work meetings, various appointments, or even a date! With the idea of being able to provide childcare that works with the schedule of todays’ parent she created WeVillage. Now, nearly ten years later, she’s bringing her vision of flexible care to southern California!

Right now we have opening specials for Lifetime Memberships and Annual Memberships available for families. In order to make a reservation at WeVillage: Los Angeles, you must be a WeVillage member, but that comes with a lot of perks! We’ll be having storytime with authors (we just had special guest Henry Winkler do a reading!), special guests, fun camp activities, date night parties, and much more! While we combine both flexible and traditional care models we hope to make lives on parents easier, whether they need us for preschool, afterschool care, part time care, or even flexible hourly care for those who are on the go. More information about the services WeVillage: Los Angeles provides can be found on our website.
