GlowHouse Kids is a family owned business founded in 2011 by Elisa DiChristina and Kevin Kinailuk, with inspiration from their children. The husband and wife team realized that children would benefit from the empowering creative design of GlowHouse Kids after searching for child-related services for their children. Kevin & Elisa are a health-minded couple and ran their first marathon together in Long Branch, NJ in 2011. Elisa DiChristina, MSW, LCSW has an array of mental health clinical experiences providing treatment for children, tweens, teens, adults and families in a wide variety of settings in many NJ communities. Expanding the concept of children “glowing” beyond the brick and mortar, Are You A Glow Kid Social Emotional Learning Program and Curriculum launched in 2018.

Creative & Innovative Child Development For Lifelong Health & Wellness
Play is the cornerstone of child development. At GlowHouse Kids, our imaginative environment encourages glowing fun through creative games for healthy innovative child development. Society needs more individuals who have the skills to create, not just memorize & produce. Our inventive environment nurtures empowerment in creative play across all domains; social, emotional, cognitive and physical. Development of skills lies in the process, not the product. Many schools and program models follow rigid curriculums, teaching to test and focus on the product, not the process. Product producing models overlook the development of many essential skills and often lead to negative outcomes, including children being afraid to take risks, anxiety, fear of the wrong answer and a lack of leadership and social-emotional skills.
“It is better to have enough ideas for some to be wrong, than to have no ideas and always be right.”
