Groups for Kids

Social Endeavors Kids is a weekly structured playgroup designed to help children develop age appropriate social and communication skills.

We believe that children learn best through successful experiences. Our play-groups provide a fun and creative setting wherein children can learn and enhance their social abilities and experience social success. Our approach is based on the notion that play is the primary mode of communication for young children, very much as language is for adults. Using structured and facilitated play situations, children will acquire new social skills and apply them in a natural and playful social context with their peers.

We believe that parents are integral to their children’s social success. As such, we create opportunities for parents to learn the same techniques and strategies implemented in the group. This way, parents will be able to assist their children in attaining success beyond the group.
