we are just for kids


We want to make your child’s therapy experience as encouraging, productive and pleasant as possible. That’s why Child’sPlay Therapy Center is a bright, fun place that is definitely not a clinical environment…and it was designed just for kids! Our Birmingham location is where the Child’sPlay story began and where we strive to continue growing and improving for you.

Our office is located conveniently off Lorna road. Our offices have grown to occupy the entire top floor of the Georgetown Place building. When on Lorna road, you will find that the entrance to our parking lot is actually located off Georgetown drive. Turn onto Georgetown drive and enter our parking lot to the left.  Then you will come up the stairs or ramp near the main entrance, which faces Georgetown Drive.

Our tagline is “Move…Talk…Play…Learn.” Kids feel free to do all that and more in our colorful Center, especially in our sensory-motor gym which is equipped with therapy devices, toys and more.

Parents, you can watch your child’s private therapy session in action from one of our parent observation rooms. We also have an ample waiting area and plenty of space for groups, classes and camps.
