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.”

Mt. Sinai Parenting Center features our games!

Mount Sinai Parenting Center Play our games at home. Watch how!

“During this acting program’s mini musical camps, tiny thespians not only act out scenes from their favorite movies and books but also pretend to live in those fantastical worlds. Counselors lead kids through games that encourage the young actors to use their imaginations to bring characters to life.”

“Jocelyn believes that play, and honing in on a child’s personal interests and ideas, is an incredible tool for learning. I agree with her completely, and find her classes and online play ideas to be some of the best that I’ve come across.”

“If you are looking for a great interactive activity for your child’s birthday party or are interested in a Child’s Play NY class or summer camp, please check out their website. I recommend them!”

“We talk about how she started Child’s Play NY, going deeper into the things you love, the importance of play for children’s development, and how important the release into creative play is for both kids and adults.”
