Children love us. And so do their parents!

With over 24 years of combined teaching experience, Rachel and Annie have impacted a tribe of tiny humans that love them. Here are some of their stories.

Let’s go to book club every Tuesday!!
— Wes, age 4
We had so much fun at LᐧMᐧNᐧOᐧPlay!
— Max, age 5
Avvie is a really, really tough critic when it comes to classes...But she has legitimately been asking to go back to LMNOPlay! every day since we went a week ago. The combination of books, projects, and super attentive teachers is really quite perfect for her, and I’m just stoked to find a class she loves.

My 3 year old daughter and 5 year old son wake up on Thursdays and the first things out of their mouths is that “today is an LMNOPlay day!” Hearing them talk about the books they read, the hands on exploration and projects they do, and witnessing them practicing together or teaching me the sounds and motions for each letter as they learn it - is truly magic in this mama’s eyes.

Rachel and Annie manage to make both of my children feel like they are important, valued, and safe while also being so much fun that my kids can’t talk about them without their eyes lighting up and giggles and stories of their times together pouring out. I’m awed and delighted to notice the ways that some of the play based missions have seeped into our daily life, as one or the other of my kids encourages “you can do it, just stick to it” at various moments of struggle for themselves or those around them.
I can’t say enough good things to truly capture the magic that happens at LᐧMᐧNᐧOᐧPlay! and I would (and do!) whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone with preschool aged children.

We attended the first class at LᐧMᐧNᐧOᐧPlay! and my 4 year old is in love! He has been hesitant to start new classes lately, but he asks every day when we will go back! I am so happy to have such an educational and fun new class for him.

Logan came home from learning with Rachel and Annie, beaming with excitement. He told me that “my teachers love me beyond reason” and he showed me some of the movement and sensory activities they had taught him to keep his whole body engaged while learning. In just a few short weeks, I saw Logan’s reading ability explode. Thank you Rachel and Annie!!

Our daughter’s reading took off with this dynamic duo!!! Through Sounds in Motion, to name one, our daughter was easily and eagerly reading through play.

Thank you Rachel and Annie for having such an instrumental hand in the foundation of our daughter’s social, emotional, and academic confidence. We feel so fortunate and couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to reading and learning in general!
