Testimonial from Jessica and Sean
Peace Through Play is a rare gem! Alan, Elisa, and all of the wonderful teachers at Peace Through Play have created a truly special environment for the kids where they are surrounded by kindness, patience, and nurturing. The teachers and staff are fully invested in each child's wellbeing; they play close attention to each child's unique needs, preferences and temperament, never missing a beat.
Whenever I hear the way that staff members speak to the children, it is just so refreshing and comforting. Every single interaction with each child is grounded in intention, purpose, and kindness. The way that the staff develop such mindfulness and self-awareness in young kids is incredible.
Since starting with Peace Through Play, Ryan's school-related stresses have melted away and his imagination has soared. He genuinely LOVES going to school, and is excited to share with us every day about the friendships he's made and the fun activities that he's done at school.
Simply put, Peace Through Play is the "village" that every parent needs in the journey of raising kind, thoughtful, happy humans.
