Kids Kingdom Rowlett
In the late 1990’s, the Rowlett community gathered together to build the original Kids Kingdom. Unfortunately, due to safety concerns in 2011, the original park had to be closed down. This didn’t stop the citizens of Rowlett for coming together for a second time to recreate this unique park. You’ll be able to find some of the usual things at kids kingdom like swings or a sandbox, but that’s only the beginning. The community came together to build, sponsor, and design this park. Local students even entered their design ideas to be incorporated – one of which was a huge robot shaped climbing structure that is a crowd favorite. Areas of the park are separated by age level, including a tot-lot with toddler friendly play spaces, and a zip line for the older visitors. A huge, climbable dinosaur skeleton is bursting out of the sandbox, and ramps along the play structures allow kiddos with various physical needs to enjoy the park.
At the Kids Kingdom Texas, you are invited to learn and play with the children of Brownsville. The center provides a space for children to take a break from their school work, practice their vocabulary, or just socialize with their peers. The Kids Kingdom provides a place to explore their surroundings while learning and having fun. Kids Kingdom staff keeps the kids active and occupied by providing multiple activities for them to practice their skills. They are taught to concentrate, read, write, listen, and speak English in a way that they can relate to the role models and mentors. The concept of Kids Kingdom was developed in order to provide children with the ability to work on a specific skill or acquire knowledge through play. The activities found at the Kids Kingdom are designed to address the developmental needs of children. The staff at Kids Kingdom Texas has been certified as specialists in early childhood education and encourages parents to be hands-on and involved with their child’s developmental needs.
