Playhouse is a preschool which values childhood as an exciting and important time when young children need to explore and experiment freely toward self-discovery.
It is a place where the most important knowledge is self-knowledge, which later informs academic learning.
Following the guiding principles of developmentally appropriate practice for young children, the Playhouse strives to provide each child with the tools needed to form a confident and positive self-concept as a learner.
A cooperative school, Playhouse encourages and values the contributions of parents and families which produce a mosaic of patterns of participation.
The Playhouse staff is experienced in fostering an environment of guidance, support, love and understanding for students and families.
Playhouse is a reflection of the ideas, values, and people in the community it serves.
With its sliding scale fee structure, Playhouse encourages an economically diverse student body.
