Welcome to Play-Dates! My name is Laura and I am the founder of Play-Dates, a place where parents bring their little ones to learn and play. From the time I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to do two things- work with children and be a mother. I am proud to say I have achieved both. The last 15 years have been spent in education; from working with toddlers to teaching kindergarten, to working as a reading specialist. I have been married to my husband for 10 years and we have 4 beautiful children.
If I have learned anything from being a mother and a teacher, it is that children, especially young children, learn from EVERYTHING they do. They are naturally curious; they want to discover and explore. And young children learn best through play.
By creating Play-Dates, I am providing an environment where a child can explore freely, feel satisfaction from self-selection, and interact with other children. An environment with toys and activities that will spark their imagination and nurture their overall development. I am providing parents with a clean, safe environment, that is easy to get to and doesn't require an all day commitment. In addition to open play time, we provide daily enrichment classes that focus on literacy, fine and gross motor skills, and creativity. We also offer birthday parties for children ages 0-5 years.
