Play Mountain Place

  • 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.
