Complete Playground recognizes that each child has their own unique strengths and abilities. It’s our mission to provide inclusive programming, utilizing the peer model approach, to support all children in a safe, challenging, and fun environment to reach their highest potential. We believe in the powers of compassion, diversity, community, and use these as a guiding premise for everything we do. It’s through our connection of families and community that we will help every child to flourish and grow.
We believe children of all abilities have great potential, regardless of limitations they may have. Inclusion to us means providing programming for every child, where they will interact and learn with and from each other. Research shows time and again that children who are fully integrated into a “peer model” approach improve and advance at a much faster rate, helping them to learn the tools and characteristics necessary to become thriving adults.
Our Story
Complete Playground was born from a place of passion, necessity, and inspiration. Alex Reznik, the founder of Complete Playground, conceptualized the idea of an inclusive indoor playground and family center that can meet all the unique needs of a family aſter struggling with finding places in New York City that would easily accommodate all three of his children. In 2018, Alex discovered that one of his sons was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. His son began therapy, but Reznik’s family spent years struggling to find the right fit with appointments typically in remote locations, clinical atmospheres, and isolating for the child in therapy. It was upon the advice of a teacher that Alex was recommended to pair his son’s therapy with inclusive activities- those with kids who have sensory disorders and those who do not. Within a few months, his son began to communicate, exploded right out of his shell, and grew into the incredible young boy he is today. Witnessing the life changing effects on his son lit a fire under Alex, and Complete Playground was born.
