Mariah BruehlI started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents, with 10 years of EDU under my belt and a growing family of four. In 2010 we received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal and in August of 2011 Shambhala Publications released my first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder.

The first Playful Learning eCourse launched in 2011, and we haven’t looked back since.
Our online lessons bring learning to life—melding natural curiosity, joy, and wonder through highly curated learning experiences.

We believe that children have an inherent drive to actively investigate and make a positive impact on the world around them. When presented with stimulating and engaging experiences, children intuitively take full advantage of the opportunities to learn.

Those opportunities are right here in each lesson at Playful Learning!
