What Parents are Saying

I have five kids ages 7 to 1 running in the backyard, and with the activities provided, it's easy to engage all of them at once. And when I'm done, they keep learning and playing independently. This has been such a lifesaver.
It’s opened my eyes to WHAT my child is learning, and WHY he finds joy in certain activities he does. It has made me learn to connect with my child through simple play.
I have been able to look into my little boy's mind in ways I wouldn't have been able to if I didn't do these activities. So special for my understanding of him and the connection we have together.
