Shoestrings - Play Therapy Room

Room Description

Play Therapy and Group Interaction provides a way for young children to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process. Our team intentionally creates a safe environment for children to interact with each other in such a way that the therapeutic benefits of play are activated. Children are observed playing with toys (blocks, kitchen sets, dolls, cars, etc.) to determine the cause of the undesirable behavior.
