Project Sunshine TelePlay is a new program using video technologies to bring play and activities to pediatric patients.

COVID-19 has impacted hospital visitation and the use of playrooms for pediatric patients and their families. Project Sunshine responded to this issue by creating TelePlay. TelePlay provides developmentally appropriate and necessary play opportunities to pediatric patients and their families. TelePlay also helps to increase joy and emotional relief, while decreasing stress and feelings of isolation.
