Child-Centered and Play-Based Learning

Our program is child-centered due to  research showing that children who are actively involved in choosing what they learn, and when they will learn it, have tremendous success in their education.  Our program offers a safe environment rich in play-based learning where children choose the activity that is exciting to them and can stay with that activity as long as it engages them. Our program features: 

  • Long periods of uninterrupted free time 
  • Few restrictions on activities
  • Adults acting as facilitators of play
  • Lots of outdoor time
