Where can I find a POP Spot?

What is a POP Spot? 
A POP Spot is an everyday place or space – like bus stops, grocery stores, and playgrounds – that inspires critical thinking, collaboration, and communication for children. We believe that “if we build it, the families will come.” 

Where can I find a POP Spot? 
Our goal is to blanket the greater Dayton community with POP spots. In Montgomery County, nearly 40% of infants and toddlers are living in dire poverty. These families lack access to enriching opportunities for their children, and many are uncertain about how to help their children learn. Our POP Spots serve as a way to bridge the gaps between children’s natural playful instincts, families’ desire to support their child’s learning, and the community’s ability to provide resource hubs into places where families are already going
