Healthier Kids Mentally & Physically

About Us

Mission

Healthier kids: mentally and physically

At the Playful Child Foundation we foster creativity, imagination, problem solving, resilience, communication skills, and total physical and mental health and well-being through play.

 

Vision 

A world with happy, health children

We Promote:

  • Less screen time and more creativity through messy and outdoor play; 

  • Open-ended play;  

  • More personal connection through face-to-face communication;  

  • Discovery of the world around you through play, observation, experimentation,  travel, and hands on activity; 

  • Building community to encourage neighborhood play and safety; 

  • The arts: music, theater, art, dance; 

  • Daily unstructured, outside physical activity;

  • Genuine competition with winners and losers; 

  • Healthy risk-taking during play at home, school, and in public. 

"Creating opportunities for children, families, and the community to grow through play"

The Playful Child Foundation was created in 2018 to honor the playful and joyful spirit of Kade Damian.

 

Our first major project is the creation, design, and building of a children's memorial park and playground in Georgetown, TX that will honor all children who now live on in our hearts and memories.

The park will be located at 1306 Country Club Drive.

Since receiving our official 501c3 non-profit status in December 2018, The Playful Child Foundation has met all deadlines to achieve our goal of breaking ground on the park within 3-5 years.

  • July, 2019Georgetown City Council approved 6 acres along the San Gabriel River Trail as the future site for the memorial park

  • December 20, 2019-  the park design committee completes and approves the conceptual design

An estimated 1 million dollars is needed to complete the project.
