What is the Comfort, Play & Teach Centre™ all about?

The Comfort, Play & Teach Centre™ creates a physical environment that brings the framework and principles of Comfort, Play & Teach alive for parents and children. By participating in activities together, kids have fun and parents experience how simple, everyday moments can be used to fully support the healthy social, emotional and intellectual development of their child.

Comfort, Play & Teach: A Positive Approach to Parenting provides a practical and engaging pathway to Positive Parenting by showing parents how to turn everyday moments into positive parenting opportunities, opening a world of possibilities for both parent and child.

The Comfort, Play & Teach Cards:

Comfort, Play & Teach cards are distributed to parents at the Centre. They show how to take the simple moments spent in the Centre, can be turned into positive experiences that help to forge a strong parent-child relationship and support the child’s healthy social, emotional and intellectual development.

When parents comfort, play with and teach their child, be it in the Comfort, Play & Teach Centre, or at home, using the accompanying cards, they learn to recognize and support the uniqueness of their child, motivate their child to be all that he can be and establish the foundations of a lifelong warm and respectful relationship with their child.
