Playwell is a women-owned small business that provides prenatal, early childhood classes, and workshops for parents and caregivers. In addition, we offer individual speech and occupational therapy sessions as well as consultative services on prenatal, early childhood, and preschool age topics. Our primary focus is to leverage the inherent benefits of play to support the physical, emotional, and social development of infants, toddlers, and preschool age children.
Playwell's owners are parents. We understand that you want to give your child the best opportunity, let us help!
Our services inspire and stimulate growth through play and hands-on experience (aka FUN!).
Children blossom with confidence to explore and learn when others enter their world of play and imagination!
