Employer Description
Started in 2016 by veteran educator and mom, Krista Yutzy-Burkey, PlayArts provides arts and enrichment programming and a gorgeous,  joyful indoor playspace for kids and parents in Philadelphia. Our beautifully designed and thoughtfully created, award-winning playspace was custom built in a converted Philadelphia Public Bath and crafted to appeal as much to adults as it does to kids.  In Spring, 2021, we launch our latest chapter, PlayArts Creative--a play-based, arts immersion preschool!

Diversity Mission Statement

We acknowledge that diversity can only make us better and in 2020 we launched our Diversity and Inclusion action plan to better use our business platform toward making a positive social impact. We have lots of work to do, but are committed to making a difference.

Diversity Mission Statement:

To provide a safe and inclusive space and develop thoughtful, socially conscious programming that celebrates diversity, embodies anti-racism and empowers our littlest citizens to be advocates and allies. We believe that this work must start from birth and the arts are a powerful tool in inspiring the next generation of global changemakers.
