What is a play-based curriculum?
Play is children’s ‘work’. It’s how they discover and learn about the world. We offer children a variety of developmentally appropriate activities each day, encouraging independence and creativity. In this way, the child learns to make decisions, think critically, and becomes self-reliant. By following a program that allows children the opportunity to make choices and think independently in a developmentally appropriate setting, we equip them with valuable skills they will use for the rest of their lives.
