about

Founded in 2017 by NYC-based architect Gregory Okshteyn, PLAYDAY set out to accomplish three things: expose children to innovative creative education, provide an art-focused after school program, and attract the best professional educators to be positive creative role models for young children.

The goal at PLAYDAY is to expose children to their own creativity all while focusing on embracing diversity, building confidence, and developing an awareness of self.

PLAYDAY offers parents flexible solutions to immerse their children in artistic exploration. Learning new skills and ways to express yourself at a young age boosts confidence and inspiration, setting children up with a skillset that will serve them well throughout their life. 

With their peers, children will participate in indoor and outdoor projects that promote focus, patience, process, forgiveness, sharing, accomplishment, dynamic problem solving, and aesthetics.

Dedicated to providing an inclusive, diverse, and respectful learning environment, PLAYDAY celebrates and encourages each child’s individuality as they explore their creativity. PLAYDAY's accredited staff members will guide them through their creative journey, sharing tidbits of artistic passion and history along the way. 

HAVE FUN | BE AWESOME is our motto!!
