How it all began…
K.I.M.’s Story Kim Marie Duplantis was my sister, who only lived 10 short months, many years ago. She was very loved and is very missed. Kim missed out on all the experiences and play that my own two children have been able to have. This museum is dedicated to my parents in her memory, Murphy & Julie Duplantis Jr., and to the promise that all children, young and old, deserve to express their inner child!
“Our mission at Kids in Motion (K.I.M.’s) Playhouse Discovery Museum is to spark the love of learning in all children, young and old. Through interactive, interdisciplinary, hands-on environments and experiences with the arts, sciences and humanities, children will develop creative thinking and problem solving skills, and a belief in their own potential.”

more… K.I.M.’s Story
The logo art work on this site was created by Kim’s great niece, Aimee Price. The name, K.I.M.’s Playhouse (Kids In Motion), was created by Aimee and her sister Lauren White as their way of acknowledging an Aunt they wish they could have known. Their other Aunt, myself, has long wished to open this Playhouse. After 20 years of teaching, learning, playing, and learning some more, it will be a joy to watch the families of our Parish walk through K.I.M.’s doors. Through the dedication of many, the goodness of our Lord, and the boundless energy of our children, we hope to see you at K.I.M.’s Playhouse Museum., where Kids are In Motion!
