The Team

Our team of next-generation community leaders and seasoned advisors is focused on executing a plan that is exciting for families, sustainable over the long term, and leverages our community's unique history, assets and values.

We believe in the benefits of play. We believe that sometimes a kid just needs to be a kid. We believe that kids need space to try things and make mistakes and try again. We believe that we will grow our community by investing in our families. And we believe that we must somehow prepare our kids for a future that we can't yet imagine.

After visiting premier children’s venues around the country, we designed Keystone Kidspace as a hybrid of best practices and programs designed with our community in mind. Our innovative approach blends freedom to play, a focus on STEAM, and a hands-on approach to learning that will prepare our youth for future success. Keystone Kidspace will provide the space, support and tools; kids will bring their imaginations. By providing a platform that is flexible and dynamic Keystone Kidspace provides a powerful and needed complement to traditional learning environments. We have built a team of dynamic community leaders with diverse talents and experience that includes developers, educators, attorneys, accountants, planners, marketers and finance experts. All are committed to the vision of Keystone Kidspace as a dynamic space where kids play with purpose and which supports York’s continued revitalization by making our community more livable, vibrant and competitive.
