Welcome to The Playful Child

The Giving Tree

Something Bigger Than Ourselves!

We are dedicated to creating a culture of childhood that honours and celebrates the gifts that live within the heart, mind, body, and spirit of all children. 

Through play, mindfulness, art, nature, and so much more, we nurture, guide, and inspire the whole being of children. Our child-inspired experiences meet little ones where they’re at along their journey of growth, development, and learning. We nurture in children meaningful relationships and experiences that help nourish their whole being and connect them to a purposeful existence. We are dedicated to children and we welcome you to join us as we reimagine childhood in ways that empower their brilliance.

Toward a Greater Good

As human beings, we live on through the legacy we share with our children. Through their profound wisdom and insights, along with the partnership we share with them, we co-construct a world that feels connected to a greater good ~ goodness that shapes who they are and how they share their gifts with the world ~ now and into their future. 

At The Playful Child, we enhance the well-being of children, as well as that of parents and educators who support the growth and development of our little ones.  We nurture empowering relationships, build nurturing environments, foster knowledge and understanding, and guide our youngest generation toward meaningful relationships and purposeful experiences.

We seek believers in our cause, people like you ~ people who will walk with us as we transform the future of our world. Through the children, our youngest and most profoundly gifted human beings, we hold hope for a more empathetic, connected, nurturing, and engaged human existence led by the leaders of tomorrow ~ our children.

Through everyday playful encounters with children, we create a culture of childhood that nourishes the well-being of our youngest citizens. Our enriched experiences give hope to the future of our world as we nurture the holistic growth of children ~ our leaders of tomorrow. 

Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.

FAQ

As a start-up not registered as a non-profit or a charity, we are unable to apply for funding for such programs. Therefore, we rely solely on our own financial means to fund The Playful Child. As costs for programs for children run very high, we benefit from generous donations from community members and businesses looking to support a culture of community that empowers children. As a way to show our appreciation and share your commitment to the worthy cause of children, we offer The Giving Tree. Through The Giving Tree we are able to highlight your generosity and share your business or family name with our community, making giving a win-win for children and for you.

Donations will go toward creating an inspiring environment (indoor, outdoor, and virtual learning spaces) for the children, parents, and educators attending The Playful Child. We create resources and inspiring workshops, gather unique and engaging play materials, art supplies, and other inspiring objects that we use to invite children, parents, and educators to explore the magic of imaginary, creative, and open-ended play.  

Since we are not registered as a charitable foundation nor a non-profit organization, we are unable to issue tax receipts.
