🧸 ☕️ Where Playdates and Coffee Dates Happily Collide

Contributor: Jamie Richardson


The Playroom Social offers parents a safe place for their children to play while they connect with other parents and caregivers!

✨ Recently opened in downtown Concord on April 16th, the play area is for children under 5 years old and is filled with a variety of toys and activities that will keep your little ones engaged and entertained.

Their Story ✨

As a mom of two young children, founder Nicole Ransley understands the challenges that parents face when trying to find a safe, clean, and engaging space for their children to play, while also having an opportunity to socialize and connect with other adults.

  • Nicole shared with us her inspiration for creating The Playroom Social, which was born out of her own personal experiences of feeling isolated as a new mom in a new town.

She wanted to create a space where parents and caregivers could come together, relax, and socialize while their children play and have fun.

“The Playroom Social is not just a play area for children; it is also a community for parents and caregivers,” says Nicole. “You can meet others, share parenting tips, and enjoy the company of like-minded individuals.”

Nicole did most of the renovations in the cute 400 square-foot space herself. She designed the space for babies and preschool-aged children under five years old.

The Play Area 🧸

The play area is filled with a variety of toys and activities that will keep little ones engaged and entertained. From building blocks to interactive toys, there is something for every child to enjoy.

  • The area is limited to no more than 15 children at a time, ensuring that children are supervised and safe at all times.

When it comes to safety and cleanliness, The Playroom Social is committed to providing a hygienic and safe environment for children to play, with the play area regularly cleaned and disinfected.

The Playroom Social offers a complimentary coffee bar, while packaged snacks and cold drinks are available for purchase. Parents are also encouraged to bring their own snacks and drinks to enjoy while their children play. Nicole enjoys partnering with other local businesses in downtown Concord and encourages parents and caregivers to visit nearby establishments for coffee and snacks to bring with them.

What’s to Come

Nicole is excited about upcoming events and special activities at The Playroom Social. She plans to turn the space into a hub for parents and caregivers to connect and learn.

The Playroom Social plans to offer fun social events in the evenings, such as trivia and cookie decorating as well as parenting-type classes with local lactation and sleep consultants, pre-and postnatal yoga, and car seat safety.
