This is a great place for kids. I've taken my 2 year old son there about 5 times so far and every time he is greeted with genuine warmth and enthusiasm from the women who work there. In the past I've had more than one childcare provider call me because he was crying and missing me, but at FTKP he gives me the quickest kiss before running into the play area and doesn't want to leave when we pick him up.
The space is filled with many toys for all ages of kids and is organized, uncluttered and clean. It's a shoe free area so socks are required. You can buy some for $2 if you forget.
The location is super convenient- right off Grape rd. so if you just want to run some errands without kids it's a perfect spot.
At first glance I thought the prices were too high for my budget, but they have coupons and deals that I have taken advantage of, and a partnership with some local employers that brings the hourly rate down significantly. Luckily my husband is a hospital employee so we qualify. Also, I'm realizing the flexibility of being able to just drop in unannounced is worth a little extra. In the past I have booked sitters for around the same price but then of course if something came up or it wasn't actually all that great of a time to get work done I was locked into the commitment I'd made with the sitter. I love knowing that my plans for the week can be revised as needed.
I joined Yelp just to make this review. I have no connection with the business whatsoever, I just really like them and want them to be in business for many years to come! - A.M. (review on Yelp)
Thanks so much for taking such great care of my little ones. The staff is so friendly, the back room is very clean and I feel very comfortable leaving my kiddos here when I need an hour or two for errands or an appointment. - R.L. (review on Facebook)

My 8 year-old was a bit tentative upon first entering, seeing that many of the toys out were for younger children. The staff members were great, helping her to find things she would like to do (even pulling items from "the closet" for her). She ended up having a blast and is asking when she can go back. A+ experience--thank you!!- M.F-S. (review on Facebook)
FTKP was able to happily convince my shy and overly attached four year old to stay and play so I could go to an appointment. My boys were both excited about their time there and ready to go back! Thank you for offering your service. - G.M. (review on Facebook)
