Social Tykes was born out of Raven Fisher’s recognition of the lack of spaces for toddlers to have playdates. She felt that it was important for her children to have a safe, positive, and fun place to connect with other children and parents in the area. She was two children, Enzo and Emory who both gave her the vision to create this modern play space. They often go on playdates with friends and family, and are stuck on new places to satisfy both children. Entering her ‘new normal’ (motherhood), she Experienced post Partum depression, and lost her old self. While this is normal for new moms, it’s nothing that’s meant to be bottled inside. She learned it takes self-love, patience, conversations, etc. Raven knows now that parents need a space to come with Their kids, allow everyone to be themselves, and spend time with one another. There’s nothing like knowing that you’re not alone in parenthood, Social Tykes will be partnering with local non-profits that will be assisting families within the community to ensure they can enjoy our space.
