"Not all learners thrive in conventional educational settings."

I began PlayThinks ​as a way to humanize education through fun, unstructured, creative play. We provide a safe, inclusive environment where every child is empowered to grow and share their unique gifts with the world.

Chaya Zlatopolsky, Founder

Celebrating neurodiversity in a safe space 

Letting all abilities shine.

Our sensory learning center is equipped with many opportunities for innovative educational design. With our inclusive learning model, we enable people of all ages and abilities to improve their quality of life.

"The biggest testimony to the success of the program is my son waking up on time and eagerly going to Mrs. Zlatopolsky's program every day. He feels empowered that he can learn. He is excited about the wood work and has friends and teachers to interact with."
