Nurturing Environment for Neurodivergent Kids

PlayDate is a place for children to work on their social and play skills, while their caregivers take a much-needed and deserved break. As educators for neurodivergent children, they understand the importance of a good playdate. 

Playdates are great opportunities for kids to socialize, use their imagination, and learn. As a mom, she understands that a good playdate is the perfect time for her to get a break… and that’s how the idea of PlayDate was born! 

They have created a warm, safe, and nurturing environment, where each class size is small and targeted specifically for the child. Classes are facilitated by trained professionals who have a passion for helping children.
