Frequently Asked Questions
What is the parking situation?
We are in downtown Manchester and do not have our own parking lot, but there is plenty of street parking around our building as well as in Pearl St. parking lot. We do have a parking map that you can refer to so that you can view the best parking options. There is a variety of free, metered with quarters, and metered with cash and card options available. You can find the parking map in our photos on our Facebook page.
What are the costs and how can I pay?
The groups/activities that we offer are typically $5, $10, or $15 and are always listed on the schedule under costs. You can pay via cash or card per class, or you can buy a punch card that has 10 punches at $5 each plus a free $5 punch!
Can I bring my stroller inside?
You can bring your stroller into the building and park it in our lobby area but it is not the responsibility of Thrive to ensure that your property is protected. The lobby area is not on the same level as the THRIVE program, it is a few stairs away. We are happy to help you bring your stroller down the stairs if your baby is sleeping and you want to keep them in there. We will be trying to keep the children’s play areas completely dry so if it is a wet day out, we would want to keep the strollers out of that area.
Can another family member or caretaker bring my child to THRIVE?
Yes! If another family member or caretaker is bringing your child to THRIVE, they will need to fill out our terms and agreements upon arrival. We encourage anyone that is involved in your child’s life to check us out and bring that child to fun activities to create a special memory and bond.
How do I register to come in?
We ask that you please always register to come to Thrive so that we can plan accordingly. Some of our groups/events have minimum and maximum registrations so we need to know how many people to plan for. We also need to be able to notify our participants if there is a change for any reason or a cancellation due to weather. Please also notify us if you have registered but something has changed and you are no longer able to attend. To register for a group/activity you can simply text our phone number, 603-657-0550, with your name, child’s name, and what you will be attending. You will then get a confirmation text and be all set to show up and pay when you arrive. If you would prefer to call that is fine as well just please know we may be checking-in someone else and need to put you on hold. You can also send us a Facebook message!
