For a child, especially between 0-5 years old, it is very important to be in a predictable, nurturing, and safe environment. Our school's philosophy is rooted in creating an environment that is responsive and developmentally appropriate to children providing for them the best possible physical, social-emotional, and intellectual development.
As part of First 5, Playland offers 2.5 hours free of charge. There are 3 possible sessions: 8am-12pm, 12pm-6pm or full time 8am-6pm.
