Emphasizing Play, Social-Emotional Development, and Parent Education

Play is central to our philosophy. We believe that children learn best when they are creating their own experiences, whether it be in the sandbox or at the art table. Children are active explorers. They have an enthusiasm for life and this leads them to search around their world to make things happen. While they are interacting with their environment they make valuable connections that lead to learning.

In our environment you will see children actively involved in various areas. We have a block area, an art table, a dramatic play area, a Play-doh table, book shelves, a puzzle table and a great deal more set up on a daily basis. Outside we have art easels, a sandbox, a climbing structure (known as the cubes), tricycles, a water table and a number of other toys and materials for the children to play with.
