Play Mountain Place was founded in Los Angeles by Phyllis Fleishman in 1949, to further the philosophy of self-motivated learning.
Our mission is to provide a humanistic educational environment that is developmentally appropriate for each age group.
Our curriculum is organic, child-initiated, and primarily experiential.
A child's inherent desire to learn is acknowledged and facilitated, not forced or squelched.
Curriculum addresses children's social and emotional development as well as their intellectual growth.
In addition, we strive to encourage the empowerment of children, and respect for each other, ourselves and the environment.
Children learn to be part of community, both small and global.
We enroll the whole family, believing in the important role family dynamics and support play in children's growth and development.
As a school, we strive to be a microcosm of the larger society, reflecting the diversity in the Los Angeles community.
In addition to enrolling families of various ethnic, religious, cultural, and sexual orientations, we stress anti-bias and culturally sensitive curriculum in our daily program.
