Children's work is their play, and play is their work.

We are Work & Play, the early childhood experts 

supporting parents and preschoolers.

Parenting is more complicated than ever.

The past years have changed how we view our homes and how we parent our youngest children. We have seen our kitchen tables become makeshift workspaces, seen our children forge ahead while learning in ways we never knew possible. We’ve re-imagined how to work, cohabitate and raise our children. Not easy but possible. Not always ideal but manageable. 

How can Work & Play support your family?

What we do: We provide individualized guidance and support to parents as they navigate parenting a young child today. We put our experience and knowledge to work fostering support, joy, and connection for families. Our methods are tested, individualized and honor who you are.

Our passion lies in empowering parents to guide and support their young children in ways they never dreamed possible.
