With so many societal demands, play and the joy of creativity is no longer a meaningful part of our life experience.
Our mission is to preserve childhood by empowering and equipping children, adults, early childhood educators, and families to regain their joy of play.
We are play advocates, setting out to enhance people’s ability to think imaginatively, see solutions, and find adventure and excitement in play.
