Our Outdoor Play Grief Support Groups provide a space where children and parents can process feelings of loss and grief through play, where they are held in connection, and can move from aloneness to a sense of togetherness. It's a space where children can play and feel a sense of normalcy as a child in spite of the loss they are experiencing. 

About Playful Mindset

Our focus is on supporting children’s mental health and addressing adverse childhood experiences in the early years (age 0-12 years old) through unstructured outdoor play & Play-Based Learning.

Land Acknowledgement

Playful Mindset is on the unceded, unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation whose presence here reaches back to time immemorial. We recognize the Anishinaabe Algonquin Nation as the customary keepers and defenders of the Ottawa River Watershed and its tributaries. The land we play on is Indigenous land.
