This is a little "creative" way I get my son interacting with other kids on a small budget. My son is 18months and stays home with my husband or I every day. I joined the Las Vegas Athletic Club gym, for only $5 enroll and $31 each month and I can take him to the playroom there for up to 2 hours everyday as part of my membership. A 3 year old may be in need of more "educational" settings, but this has been working really great for me and the cost is awesome! Good luck!
