Grateful for where I'm at

Excited for where I'm going

I am first and foremost a Mom of two and never anticipated being a small business owner. I bought the Beverly Children's Piazza in June 2019 because I believe in the heart of its mission and couldn't imagine it closing. I knew that someone had to figure out a way to keep the space open as a resource for the North Shore community. I am your steward to provide a clean, welcoming, and stimulating space for your family to grow and develop. This playspace will stay open so your family will have Room to Bloom. And I can't wait to join you for the journey.

About Us

Mission Statement:

to brighten the community by providing a nurturing gathering place for families to grow and celebrate through purposeful play

Vision Statement

to cultivate a neighborhood shared playspace with personal growth offerings for the whole family

With Thanks:

much gratitude and appreciation for all the hard work and dedication by the previous owners of The Children's Piazza - without the years of foundation built by founder Charae D'Ambra and co-owner Becky Bishop Abbott none of this would be possible. Thank you for passing the torch and trusting us to continue your legacy. 

Please continue to visit their Peabody location of The Children's Piazza when you're in West Peabody.
