I became a full-time stay at home mom of three little humans a little over a year ago. If I knew then, what I know now things would have gone a bit smoother. But live and learn, right?! And I’m so glad I learned about Pearachute.
What is Pearachute?
Pearachute is a monthly membership club that makes it easy for parents and caregivers to discover, book and drop into the best kids classes and activities in town. Their mission is to inspire children’s curiosity and passion by empowering parents and caregivers through convenience and choice.
And with three kids in tow, I’m ALL about convenience and choice! While my older boys were busy at summer camp I used the time to take my toddler along to various activities around Collin County.
Pearachute is currently offered in Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth and Kansas City. Their DFW area expands to places well into our Collin County zone. I recently got the opportunity to try their 5-Class Flex Pack.

What was our favorite part?
Hands down has to be the fact that we could drop into any of their 40+ partner sites to try them out and have all of the fun. Sometimes you just want to scope out a place to see if it’s something that your little one is going to like. The ease and flexibility of choosing where we’d go on any given day through my phone and dropping in without all the paperwork involved was a huge bonus. During our time using Pearachute we visited: Jungle Joe’s in Frisco, Kid Expressions in McKinney, Jump Mania in Plano and KIDZ Play in Plano. We still have other partner sites we want to visit like The COOP in Frisco (which we will be visiting this week!)
Another favorite part, aside from all the fun my toddler had while trying out all the locations, Pearachute offers came from the business owner in me.
…Pearachute is not just about the bond between children and the people who care for them. We are also here to strengthen local businesses, founded by entrepreneurs who took their passions and created opportunities to teach and share with a new generation of young people.
When you become a business owner, you go out on a limb that someone (hopefully many) will take an interest and value what you do and what you have to offer. Pearachute facilitates that connection between partner sites and families. That is truly invaluable.
