Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Creative play experiences for children of all ages and skill levels are an integral part of the unique and flexible child care opportunities at Playschool. Parents who bring their children to Playschool can count on a consistently fun, loving, caring, and respectful environment where children feel safe and nurtured. Playschool believes that children need to interact with both peers and adults as they establish patterns for future success. Playschool staff and teachers interrelate with the children from the minute they are dropped off in the morning, until their parent returns at day's end. Playschool Child Care, Inc. provides the best child care available outside of home with its three unique programs."
