Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Each child is treated like an individual with their own capabilities. Our teachers teach each child at their level and bring them as far as they can go.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that every child learns through play. Through play, children learn about the world around them, and where their place in the world might be. They learn through stories, songs, block building and dramatic play. They experience their senses through art, science, cooking, gardening, and so much more. Children learn to socialize with others when given the opportunity to interact on a regular basis with other children of similar ages.

At Play Time Learning, our daily curriculum gives children both the guidance and the freedom to play, learn, and grow in ways that are meaningful and important to them.

Our experienced teachers nurture childrenâ??s natural curiosity and wonder within a safe, home-like environment that allows them to explore and discover the world around them.

Come Play With Us!
Thereâ??s no time like the present to introduce your child to the wonderful world of constructive play. Enrich your child with an experience sure to last a lifetime. The right first start will pave the way for their future. Come play with us today!
