our history

In my 20 plus years of working with children of all abilities, I have learned to expect amazing things from my clients! As educators, parents, and medical professionals, we often forget the most powerful part of a child is their potential! WhenKidsPlay was developed to meet a need in the community of providing services and opportunities to children who need a little extra support to grow. We understand that this happens best when kids play!! We look forward to our partnership with you to make it all possible!  


Leilani Brown, OT - WhenKidsPlay CEO


We strive to be a positive part of the community. WhenKidsPlay encourages staff and contractors to volunteer. Our company contributes to local charities and whenever possible becomes part of local events. We look forward to seeing you there!
