Welcome to the Kids Putnam Website!
"Play is the way children discover themselves--starting with their fingers and toes and gradually including their whole body, their emotions, and their mind." -Joan Almon (Adventure: The Value Of Risk In Children's Play)
At Kids Putnam, safety is a big priority. In May, we were able to increase our level of safety by adding a Storm Shelter to our facility! We are happy to have a place where our children and staff can go in the event of terrible weather.
Due to the restrictions put in place in response to COVID-19, we were able to immediately transition our in home Developmental Therapy visits to virtual teletherapy. We appreciate our families joining us during this journey of teletherapy and look forward to getting to work as a team in person again soon!
