Play-Based Learning

“Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.”
 — Fred Rogers


Our philosophy of early education is rooted in the benefits and lessons that a play-based curriculum offers to young children.  We believe that learning through both facilitated and organic play during early childhood is essential preparation both for school and for life.
