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.
