Jelly Bellies is Perfect for the Guardian on the Go



With the dawn of a new decade upon us, what better time than now to dream big? Let Jelly Bellies, the new supervised childcare facility at The Candy Factory, help you achieve all of your goals! Jelly Bellies is perfect for the guardian on the go. We offer a welcoming and whimsical environment for little ones ages 2-12 to engage in their passions.

Drop the kids off for a 2-hour block, grab a cup of coffee, and work while they have fun. Whether it’s whipping up a pretend meal in our play kitchen, or getting creative at the arts and crafts table; there’s something at Jelly Bellies to spark any imagination. Best of all there is no mess for you to clean up at the end!
