The Community Play School is designed to provide a child-centered and individualized arts-enriched program inspired by the Reggio Emilia method. Our philosophy is characterized by these developmental education principles:
- Children learn through play, interaction, problem solving, exploration, and discovery.
- Cooperation is more conducive to learning than competition.
- Children learn best when they can make choices and set their own goals.
- Each child is unique.
- Education is an on-going process which is enhanced when the child, teacher and family work together.
At the Community Play School we value a child’s right to a quality education that celebrates who he or she is, while providing tools to support ongoing emotional, intellectual, and creative growth. Our program is designed to deepen and enrich children’s encounters with the world, their community, and each other.
We are an affordable, community-based preschool dedicated to inclusion and diversity.
