Philosophy & Approach

General School Mission

"The children at Oswego Playschool play and learn in a non-pressured, stimulating environment. Under the direction of a professional teacher and with the help of caring parents, children are encouraged and supported to learn through play. We are not "academically" structured, but we do stress a respectful and creative environment that is developmentally appropriate. The Playschool is organized so that the child makes his/her own choices from a wide array of educational offerings. Curriculum is addressed to the whole child's development: social, emotional, physical, and intellectual. The environment is carefully prepared so that the children learn through active exploration and interaction, with the emphasis on child directed choice.
Oswego Playschool has been blessed over the years with many talented, caring, and dedicated Teachers. The genuine commitment of both Teachers and the parents at Oswego Playschool contributes to the continuation of the school's long-standing tradition of excellence. Its rich experience of providing "learning through play" experiences for preschoolers will continue to benefit the community."
