Guided play is wonderful. It maintains the joyful child-directed aspects of free play but adds on additional focus on learning goals through light adult scaffolding. It offers an opportunity for exploration in a context specifically designed to foster a learning goal. Guided play promotes language learning, mathematical and spatial skills, social experiences, and creative arts. Children are engaged in meaningful play that is socially interactive which is the basis of all learning.
We offer a developmentally appropriate play-based preschool program for children ages 2 1/2-6 years of age. We value each stage of a child’s development and we consider each child to be unique in their own way.
