Indie Learning Center in Phoenix

Kim Gudykunst Ollerhead

It’s not very common that I’m speechless but the first day I walked into Indie Learning Center in Phoenix, I  saw the vision come to life and it left me without words. The center is a community space for all families and children of all abilities. They focus on play and learning with the kids and want parents to feel like they have a supportive community space to hang out in.

Indie goes beyond the diagnosis and operates within a social model of therapy, they do not believe a diagnosis determines participation. Children and families who participate in the program can expect a learning environment where children are exactly who they are supposed to be, children.

I was walking around saying Wow, OMG, it’s even cooler in this room. This is where I want go learn and play! My kids said they want to learn through playing here daily. I would totally recommend it for an educational play time. All the toys and items you wanted in your own home to help your kids grow and learn is in this space. Even better, it’s new and exciting because it’s not yours.
