JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Region 8 News got a sneak peek inside ARKids Pediatric Day Center's new facility in Jonesboro.

ARKids held an open house for the new facility on Saturday.

Community members came out to enjoy the celebration at the center.

The new location offers various pediatric therapies to kids with developmental delays or medical issues.

"Our goal is for them to, if they test into our program, to try to get them to where they're able to succeed in life with as little a short period of time as possible,” Director Amber Powell said.

Parents toured through the new functional play area, which offers opportunities for children to be active while receiving therapy.

ARKids also has a pediatric day center in Paragould.
