I'm a Brooklyn native who was lucky enough to grow up playing outside all the time with one or all of the 20+ kids on my block. I want to give my two little girls the opportunity to feel the same joy as I did with unrestricted play outside! My work as a music therapist and an early childhood special education teacher, has taught me the value of child-led experiential play. Come join me and my girls and see what we can discover outside on the beach and in the nature preserve!
