Dharma Kids, located inside Dharma Health Institute, in Playa del Rey, is a community organization, based in Playa Del Rey that offers a unique opportunity for children to expand their creativity through Art and crafts. In the Infant playgroup, children are exposed to music, movement and a number of sensory stations as they learn about themselves and the world around them. For other ages, we offer a weekly After School / Homeschool Playgroups that bridges literacy, creativity and fun.
