Our vision is to create a community of socially responsible and respected youth. Our mission is to create a trusted play environment for parents and kids to have fun, to celebrate friendships, and to be encouraged to develop positive character strengths.


We believe children deserve a safe and fun environment where friendships begin and efforts are celebrated. We encourage parents and children to make time for play and laughter – more than just in between car rides and during tutoring classes.

We want to bring back care-free days filled with giggles and escapades, discovering secret paths as we follow our curiosity, making toys and sharing ideas, grabbing a best friend’s hand and exploring the colorful road ahead. We are bringing back the important lessons: Share everything. Play fair. Hold hands and stick together. Don’t give up. Be nice to others.

We give children the opportunity to develop important life skills to have fun, to play together, and to build character. If a child is like a little seed, play is like the water, the sunshine and the rich earth that nourishes them into a fully-grown tree and a well-rounded person. Play is not a waste of time. It’s more than fun. Play has a purpose, nourishing the potential inside all of us.

  Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.  

— Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., American Jurist


Character strengths are the goodness inside all of us. We all have them. They are reflected through the way we think, feel, and act, as we strive to bring positivity and happiness in our own and others’ lives. We possess all 24 character strengths. It is the varying degree of these strengths combined that make each of us unique! We tend to use certain strengths more often than others. Nonetheless, when a new challenge arise, we may call forth other strengths to help us. This also means that our goodness is not limited but can be cultivated over the course of our lives.

At ZipPiTeeDoo’s, we focus on building children’s character strengths by creating a unique environment in which they are encouraged to discover and develop their own strengths. We are dedicated to life-long learning and self-improvement.

why is it important?

Character strengths help us to be successful and lead happier and more meaningful lives. Seeing ourselves through these traits of strengths, rather than weakness, enable us to flourish and grow. We learn to use our character strengths to fulfil our potential, to appreciate ourselves and each other, and in turn, help us become more confident, creative, and resilient people.

Character strength are like a muscle, the more you use them, the stronger they become. We know that the earlier we start fostering our strengths, the better we are able to use them.

I like to finish everything that I start, even if it is difficult and takes a lot of time and focus.

I am in control of my behavior and emotions so they fit the situation.

I am thankful for the good things that happen.
