Carefully curated programs for all ages and interests.

We are proud to provide a robust array of programs for diverse ages and backgrounds. As our population changes, whether in age, interests, or availability, we make changes too. Our aim is to be as flexible as possible and have developed program models to meet the wants and needs of our patients, siblings, and caregivers wherever on their journey they may be.

Ronald McDonald House New York hosts over two dozen weekly (or in some cases, twice weekly) programs with recurring, set times and days of the week. Our space is well-used and well-loved. The Playroom is open from 10:00am to 9:00pm every single day, every holiday, and every rain and snow day without exception! All who enter our Playroom are encouraged to “choose your own adventure” and explore as they wish.
