What Parents say about us

“Our daughter has done two Child’s Play NY productions and both experiences and productions were fantastic. Everyone connected with Child’s Play NY is very caring and attentive, while making the process of acting, singing and learning a whole play very enjoyable. And while my daughter isn’t the most outgoing kid and has some anxiety issues, she always looked forward to each rehearsal and really surprised us how well she performed in front of a room full of people. Cannot recommend Child’s Play NY highly enough.”
Matt Sloan
Our son has really enjoyed the various Child’s Play NY programs – classes, day-long and week-long camps. The teachers have all been wonderfully creative, connected, and inspiring.  It seems like one of those programs where the theoretical/abstract side of what they’re trying to do is really working. I love the ways that imagination is integrated into games, storytelling, and art-making – he really comes away with richer, sillier (in a good way), broader ideas for how to express himself.”
