Creative Art group in Hebrew for Israeli kids in relocation to support cultural adjustment for kids in kindergarten to 3rd grade.

We offer 8 weekly creative arts therapy group sessions for 4-6 participants, designed for children who have recently moved from Israel with their families. This provides them with a weekly opportunity to connect with others who share a similar background, creating a safe space to playfully explore feelings and aspects of moving and cultural adjustments through creativity, improvisation, and games, conducted in both Hebrew and English.

Play group enhances exploration and understanding of emotions, enabling individuals to navigate challenges and difficulties through the medium of play.

Option for first trial session at the cost of $50.
