While our facility remains closed to ensure the safety of our student members, we remain committed to bringing our social and emotional learning curriculum into the homes of our members every day. Essential to carrying out our mission and vision for the SAY Detroit Play Center is maintaining a dedicated, one-on-one check-ins with our members and their families.
