Our MISSION

is to create spaces and events where children with and without special needs, living with disabilities and serious conditions and their families can connect and engage in a way that creates an environment of compassion and equality for everyone to thrive, learn from each other and grow beyond limitations.

Our GOAL

is to support every child’s social and emotional development and help fill in the gaps by creating spaces and events for ALL children and their families to interact and learn about and from each other, exchange views and empathize with the others world view.

Our VISION

We strive to ensure that NO child is left without having a space to play and thrive.

Through our work, we will spread awareness, encourage connections and friendships, take away shyness and fears, empower and welcome diversity, solve behavior problems, nurture confidence, and support expressing emotions and opinions… all of this through play and fun!

Ultimately we endeavor to build stronger, supportive and brave communities, who embrace and celebrate diversity.

We thrive to ensure that all physical spaces where children grow and live are designed for inclusion of children with and without special needs.

INCLUSION

We all want to be part of this world in our own way. We all want to BELONG, BE RESPECTED AND BE LOVED for who we are regardless of ability. We all have something to contribute, something to teach and something to learn. Diversity offers a unique way for all to learn and grow. Creating diverse environments is as Creating inclusive spaces doesn’t have to but require a willingness and mindfullness within communities.

FREE GUIDE

This project was co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Network.  Every child wants, deserves and needs to play. Unfortunately most spaces where children meet and play in fact create exclusion. We are setting out to change this with a new approach to inclusive playground design for all children to have the freedom to explore their environment and learn in the context of family, community ability and culture.
