Child's Play was founded in 1979 by a group of parents who wanted to participate in their children's early educational experience.
Our goal is to encourage children to grow at their own pace in a safe, supportive and enriching environment.
Our teachers allow children to develop the social skills, emotional maturity, and concepts of the world appropriate at each developmental stage. By focusing on their creative play in the classroom, the teachers allow the children to suggest and discover the activities most suited to learning what they are ready to learn.
Such open-ended play is augmented with more traditional "teaching" - demonstrating and explaining concepts - providing more structure and shifting more responsibility to the children as development allows.
