CEO + creative founder
Hello, I am Bianca, CEO + Creative Founder of INSPIRED Play Café LLC. I am a Christian woman of great faith and a mother to an incredibly loving boy, Auggie. From young as I can recall, I’ve had a natural love and connection for children. Without effort, I have always been fascinated in understanding and observing human behavior, specifically, why we do what we do and what motivates us? As a teenager, I had a vision from God and at that time all I could see when I closed my eyes tightly was the building INSPIRED Play Cafe LLC is currently in but it was empty. Many years later, when I became a mom, I began getting more pieces to the puzzle. I had vision to build a space where children could gather to be loved, to learn, and to grow. This was only the beginning. A vision where the world would be changd one community at a time.
I grew up in Overland Park, KS and graduated from Johnson County Community College in 2013 with an associate's degree in Criminal Justice. I went on to study further (yes, I love school) and graduated from the University of Kansas in 2016, with my degrees in Applied Behavior Analysis and Psychology. At KU, I also did a year-long practicum in a laboratory for Organizational Behavioral Management, where I consulted with other businesses to make their operation more effective with research based methods. After college, I took an intense exam and became credentialed as a Registered Behavior Technician (Behavior Therapist). I then worked clinically for seven years, specializing in providing 1:1 Behavioral Therapy for children. Finally, I was a stay-at-home mother after Auggie was born and up until I began building this business in 2021.
It was here, the beginning of motherhood, where I noticed an immediate demand and lack of indoor places for children. Not only was this concept lacking, but so was the educational and nutritious piece to "play places". That is when I began researching and self-teaching educational methods to play. Soon after, I changed my home environment and lifestyle to reflect a play-learning environment for my son and other children who would come to our home to visit. I also began to share my sons educational play journey with other moms and friends through social media by creating "AuggiesMontessori" account. This is when I noticed the sincere and deep interest others had in learning and experiencing educational play and the environments in their own lives. At this moment, I became INSPIRED to bring my teenage God given vision its first breath of life!
INSPIRED Play Cafe LLC brings together the relationship between an educational environment for the whole child and a cafe with nutritious food and beverage for the engaged community.
I cant wait to meet you and your family. I pray that this space blesses you.
Stay INSPIRED + In Christ,
