Play Haven has been a dream of mine for a long time. Having been a pre-school teacher for 12 years, and a mother of two in San Francisco, I've always understood the value of open-ended play and social interaction in children’s everyday lives. So I wanted to provide a space where children’s play is valued.
Children learn in so many different ways, and their interests are ever changing. In my own children, I see an artist one day, a doctor the next, and a pirate the day after. I want to encourage all of these in them, but home isn't always best equipped to do so (cleanup can be a little unmotivating as well). And fitting scheduled classes around nap times, doctor’s appointments, and just busy family life can be a challenge.
So after a long period of imagining and planning, Play Haven was finally born. We are an indoor play space you can visit any time of the day to let your child explore their imagination. Here they can follow their interests and play at their own pace, while you spend quality time together and with other families.
Thank you for visiting our site, and I hope to see you at Play Haven.
