Community Play School

Community Play School is currently enrolling three and four year olds for the 2013/2014 school year. Our twos program is fully enrolled. Please contact us if you are interested in getting on the waiting list or scheduling a visit.
 
We are a play-based preschool for children ages 2 through 5 located in Faith Community United Methodist Church in Northeast Baltimore's Hamilton Community. We meet September through May, Monday through Friday from 9am to 12:45 pm with 2, 3, 4 or 5 day schedules. For more information please send an email to director, Courtney Gardner atcommunityplayschool@gmail.com or call 443-814-1211.

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.
