about the owners


Jen and Chris have two amazing kids: Coral, age 4 and Sequoia, age 1.  Chris is a Fire Captain with Contra Costa County Fire and Jen, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, has found Tahoe Tot Spot to be a natural way to give back to the community. Both Jen and Chris were professional rock climbers pre-parenthod and aspire to climb again...some day.  They relocated to South Lake Tahoe over 3 years ago from the SF Bay Area in search of more trees and less cars.  They love the Tahoe community and wanted to be a part of it by keeping Tahoe Tot Spot open and increasing enrichment activities for our valuable youth.  They are very open to feedback and suggestions, please feel free to share your thoughts as we transition.  


About tahoe tot spot

Since it's opening in 2008, Tahoe Tot Spot has been known as a community resource for families with young children and babies to play and learn.  Tahoe Tot Spot is full of gross motor activities such as a trampoline, ball pit, climbing wall and more.  Fine motor activities include puzzles, smaller toys, kitchen, train activities, guided art and science activities.  The Tot Spot has age-approrpriate led activities multiple days a week.  We have 11 weekly high quality fitness classes where you can come with your child(ren) and get a great workout.  This is an amazing place for birthday parties and other events. As Jen and Chris take over this Tahoe tradition, the future is even brighter.  Look forward to seeing many changes as Tahoe Tot Spot grows into an even better community destination for all things baby, toddler, and kiddo related. We look forward to growing with you!
