We feel some kinship with Patty’s work, and give her valuable booklets about listening and setting limits to every family that attends our school.

Alfie Kohn and Judy Accardi The acclaimed educator, lecturer and author Alfie Kohn visited Play Mountain Place in 2012. We feel some kinship with Alfie’s work, and have his books and DVDs in our Parent Library, so that parents can get to know his work better. Play Mountain Place is a part of a much larger movement in education, the “education revolution.” Our commitment to make student-centered education available here in Los Angeles is echoed around the world. We are also committed to our work to help parents parent peacefully. We often host people from our larger community, and sometimes, we travel to other schools and conferences that share our commitment.
