Hi, my name is Addy and I am the creator of Play To Develop! I am so happy you have found this page!

As a registered nurse, and a mother of two little boys, I am extremely passionate about the health and well-being our children. When my first son was born, I dove head first into researching the best possible ways to help guide him through all the different stages of development.

After much research, I found one common theme, PLAY!!! I have learned the importance of learning through play and essentially “letting our kids be kids!”

Play To Develop is filled with play-based learning activities and resources to help your child learn and develop to their maximum potential.

Parenting is a rough roller-coaster ride, especially with today’s societal expectations! I am here to provide you with the support and resources you need to make play a more fun and enjoyable experience for both you and your little one!
