The KCB Play Institute’s Approach

At the KCB Play Institute, we believe in putting families at the center of our care services. Our main goal is to promote the health and well-being of children and their families by fostering respectful partnerships between families and professionals. We appreciate and honor the unique strengths, cultures, traditions, and expertise that both families and professionals bring to the table in this relationship.
