School Notes

  • At Charlestown Playhouse (Playschool) we believe that it is through play that children learn best about themselves and their world, through active involvement with real materials and experiences. Imaginative play enables children to try out different roles and act out inner feelings and new experiences in an atmosphere of safety and acceptance and in a way that respects each child's individuality and interests. Playschool teachers approach the care of young children with open minds and warm hearts and with certain basic beliefs about the preschool child. Every child needs two things; love and respect. To believe in themselves, children need to feel that the adults around them believe in them as separate individuals with the right to form their own opinions, express their own desires, and to make their own mistakes. The Charlestown Playhouse does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability in admission or access to, or treatment in or employment in, its educational programs or activities.
