The definition of playology is the theory of and belief in the importance and power . . . of play. These powers of play make an individual’s life and world a better place, as the power of play is perfect and magnificent to all beings, regardless of age, number of legs or paws, type of fur or hair, ears, teeth, tongue, sex, color, DNA, history or heritage.
Playologists are evolved, free, positive, happy, playful beings, who relate to the world and one another in a universal language of smiles and laughter.
We at the Louisiana Children's Discovery Center are here to provide an exceptional environment where play and learning inspire children to embrace their world.
