The Sod Room (aka Sprout) Almost Ready for its Debut

It's been just over a year since we posted about The Sod Room (formerly knows as Sprout Playroom), a new playspace for kids coming to 1454 S. Michigan.

Opening a business ain't easy, but we're glad to see that they've stuck with it.  Judging by this article in DNAinfo Chicago, opening should be coming in a couple weeks.  The owner, Cynthia Valencia, weighs in:
She doesn't envision the space as a daycare center — her goal is to bring parents and kids together and create a community for South Loop parents like the north side hubs she used to travel to. 
"We wanted to make it a place that's good for meet ups, good for groups, and good for individuals that are new to parenting and need a community," she said. "Hopefully they can see a familiar face and strike up a friendship." 
It's a good read.  Best of all the article has a lot of pictures that gives a good feel for the space.

Best of luck to the Sod Room!
