“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.  But for children play is serious learning.  Play is really the work of childhood.”
– Fred Rogers

Our program runs Monday-Thursday 9a-1p for children 2 ½-5 years old. Families may choose either a part-time schedule (2 days) or a full-time schedule (4 days). We offer a play-based and child-centered program with a focus on social skill development and outdoor exploration.  Students are invited to play and explore through process art, blocks, sensory stations, the mud kitchen, garden, puzzles, games, songs and more.  We use the Second Step social emotional curriculum to teach skills for learning, empathy, emotion management, forming friendships, and problem-solving.  Our mixed-aged classroom allows children to learn and develop at their own pace.  The younger children are guided by their older peers and older children build skills and confidence by helping others.
