Play-Based Learning Defined

Children make sense of their world by naturally learning through play. Play-based learning, specifically guided play, allows for experiences that are child-directed and teacher-facilitated. Guided play is self-chosen, enjoyable and process-oriented. It maintains the joy of free play while allowing children to connect authentically with content. Children progress towards learning goals by making meaningful personal discoveries and then apply them to their own lives.

Our age appropriate curriculum fully supports play based learning and it's a lot of fun!

Classrooms are thoughtfully designed for one small age group. A combination of a rich learning environment with intentional teaching maximizes the developmental and educational experience for your child.

Daily Outdoor Play

Benefits of Outdoor Play:

  • Motor skill development with greater freedom to run, jump, and climb

  • Reduced risk of myopia, or nearsightedness

  • Exposure to sunlight, which enhances health and mental performance

  • Opportunities for hands-on learning about physical forces and concepts

  • Reduced stress levels, better moods, and improved concentration

  • More naturally-attuned sleep rhythms

  • Enhanced opportunities to learn social skills, overcome fears, and develop a lifelong connection with nature

Our playground is secured with a 6 foot privacy fence. All of our playground equipment is age appropriate and in great condition. ​Our playground surface is composed of shock absorbing rubber tiles.

Nutritious Breakfast, Lunch & Snacks Included in Tuition

Growing, playing and learning certainly makes children hungry! To fuel their bodies, we provide a healthy, balanced breakfast, lunch and snack at no additional cost.

 

Protein, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, milk and plenty of water are offered daily.

Family style dining allows children and teachers to sit and have a meal or snack together. Children learn to make healthy food choices, independences and they improve fine motor skills by serving themselves.

Daily Communication for Peace of Mind

Child Pilot keeps you connected with your child's teacher through email or text. You will also receive activity reports and photos/videos so you will know how your child is doing throughout the day.

In addition to daily communication, we offer two parent-teacher check-ins during the year so you can gain a deeper understanding of what your child is learning. This is also a great time to discuss concerns and how we can support each other to help your child be successful.

Parents often tell us that the quality of the relationships that they have with our teachers and school is exceptionally reassuring.
