Designed for Play

You'll find our philosophy of play reflected in every facet of our program and facility. The Windmill classroom opens into a large private playground, allowing children to move freely between indoor and outdoor play at their own direction.

 

Each day before class the teachers prepare the indoor and outdoor spaces with multiple activity areas  which are designed to both appeal to the immediate interests of the children and introduce them to new experiences and ideas.

 

The indoor environment promotes hands on experiences and exploration with a variety of media such as art materials, dress-up clothing for imaginary play, music, cars, trains, manipulatives and various materials for children to construct their own environments. Children even participate in preparing their own snack!

 

Our outdoor playground includes areas for art, sensory exploration and tricycle riding, plus large sand areas, a climbing structure and a playhouse for dramatic play.
