According to the CDC, Adverse Childhood Experiences are the single greatest health threat facing kids today. Luckily, research identifies responsive relationships with adult caregivers as the most critical component to successful trauma treatment.
Life is Good Playmakers provides teachers, nurses, social workers, and other childcare professionals with training, support, and workshops that help them understand trauma and compassion-informed care.
More than 15,000 childcare professionals are engaged in the Playmaker Program, which improves the quality of care for more than 1 million kids each year.
Life is Good Playmakers' partner, the Life is Good Company, donates 10% of their net profits to the Playmakers to cover operating costs, so 100% of every donation goes directly to our work.
Every dollar you donate helps to provide retreats, tools, and ongoing coaching to help childcare professionals create optimal environments for kids to heal, grow, and thrive.
