PLAY Preschool

PLAY is the long time realization of more than 50 years of combined teaching experience from a mother-son duo.
PLAY excels in teaching children about the wonders found in and out of the classroom.
We believe that children thrive best when in a program that allows them to express who they are both in and out of the classroom.
Children are presented with materials in the classroom that allows them to challenge themselves at their own individual pace.
Outside, the children are able to explore the space around them in an environment that is safe and exciting.

I had brought my child to PLAY for a couple of years. Our experience was great and very comforting. Nowadays, it is difficult to find somewhere safe for your child and to have a staff as trusting and caring as they do at PLAY. My child has grown and learned a lot. Thanks PLAY for everything! Keep at it!

This is by far the best preschool in the area. The school administration and teachers take the safety and education of the students very seriously. They keep the lines of communication open with all the parents and are very willing to help meet parents where they are in order to best meet the needs of the students. My kids have been coming here for a few years now and they love showing up every morning. I highly recommend this to any parents looking for a safe and welcoming environment for their children.

What an absolutely amazing preschool. With both part time and full-time options PLAY was able to accommodate all our needs. They even offer infant care for children 3 months and up. I would highly recommend this preschool and infant center to anyone who is looking for child care in the Silver Lake, Los Feliz, Atwater and Glendale areas of Los Angeles.

This school has grown from good to better. Ever since the relocation to a bigger location and a much more accommodating and convenient... We have been happy with the administration and staff. Especially a couple of girls are always ready to listen and personable... My child likes the teacher and loves being there. Good job PLAY SCHOOL.

Our son attended PLAY from age 2 through age 5 when he left for kindergarten. This is an incredible place full of wonderful teachers and dedicated staff. The playground is magnificent and the diversity of backgrounds amongst the students is terrific. We will never be able to thank PLAY enough for helping us with potty training (doing most of it really) and even more so for helping shape our son into the delightful person that he is. PLAY gave him all the skills he needs to be ready for kindergarten and to thrive in the world.

My Husband and I brought our daughter after researching different schools. My daughter did great, and we loved it at PLAY, and we enjoyed our time here. We did pull our daughter out since we moved to the San Gabriel Valley. The teachers were friendly. We miss you, Ms Gloria, and Annie and Gabriel were always available for question and suggestions. I highly recommend any parent take a tour and see what you're missing out.
