Whether your child is already set on a dream job or still exploring, a visit to The Occupation Station is fun for all. “There’s no technology,” says Meghan Henry, who owns the business with her husband, Michael. “Just imagination-based play – and parents can choose to either sit back and watch or participate.”
At this safe, interactive space, kids can dress up for work and tinker around at different job- and career-themed toy stations. They can pretend play being a doctor, teacher, mechanic or athlete, plus explore the many other possibilities. Who says work can’t be fun?
