We Believe in the Power of Play! 

Research on young children’s learning and development proves how play strongly benefits a child’s intellectual, social, emotional, physical and language development.


Children at play are actively involved in creating themes, exploring and establishing environments, solving problems, and developing shared understandings.  Through play, young children learn to see other’s points of view, to use language in new ways, to interact with others, and to develop their muscles and coordination.
