Playdates L.A. believes a playdate is more than just an opportunity for play. A playdate is an opportunity for a child or adolescent to learn, interact, and strengthen their social, emotional and cognitive well-being. Through play, a child can build social relationships, problem solve and develop long-lasting relationships. Play is also an important component in a child or adolescents ability to learn. Playdates L.A. has one goal in mind. We want to play a role in your child's well-being and development.
