WOW! was founded in Louisville in 1996 by Lisa and Dario Atallah, community members who understood the importance of play in children’s learning. With support from the City of Lafayette, we relocated in 2004 to the old Lafayette fire station. WOW! has grown into a beloved community resource and has proudly served over one million children and families throughout the Boulder County community.
