Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Children's Playhouse, established in 1984, was developed to provide an atmosphere of emotional security and intellectual challenge. Young children are like sponges, soaking up more information faster than at any other time of life. The neurological basis for all feeling and learning is established during the child's first four years. During this time we have a unique opportunity to create the foundation for all future learning. The most important element to a solid foundation is high self-esteem. Children who feel good about themselves can learn anything.

At The Playhouse we value each child's unique contribution. An abundant variety of opportunities are provided for creative play and for mental and physical challenges which lead to success and growth. Many of Maria Montessori's developmental learning materials are used at The Playhouse.

Children are acknowledged for such traits as generosity, kindness, patience, honesty, cheerfulness, empathy, curiosity and creativity. Full respect is given to each child.
