At Creative Play School, our philosophy of learning through play is demonstrated in our curriculum (based on the High Scope Curriculum) with daily, creative activities such as art, music and creative movement. Science, cooking, reading, and math readiness are also incorporated into the children's weekly lesson plan. In addition, the school age program offers homework help and enrichment activities after school, and swimming during the summer camp. The center uses an integrated curriculum approach and children learn through planned play activities. This planned play is a child's work.
We believe children need a safe, clean and supportive environment in which to grow and learn. Individuality and self expression are valued and encouraged in children and staff. Children must be given the opportunity to grow and learn at their own pace, while learning to play and behave cooperatively as part of our school family. Therefore, the school day is a balance of planned activities and free time. Our goal is for every child to enjoy learning and coming to school, as this is the groundwork for later success.
Parents are always welcome at the center. We believe that quality care is a partnership between family and school. Parents help us understand children's individual differences and are a vital part of our program. Your time and energy at school benefit all and build self- esteem and pride in your child.
Admission is open to all children. Parents and children must come in for an interview with the director before enrollment can take place. An immunization record and birth certificate are required before a child may attend school.
