"Through play we aspire to help each child to reach their full potential socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically".
At Learn and Play Preschool, we help develop Kindergarten readiness skills in fun and creative ways through the use of games, stories, rhymes and music. We use the fun family phonics program to teach letter recognition and letter sounds. Mr. I's Fun and Facts CD's are used to teach geography and learn about places all around the world. Learning is fun at Learn and Play Preschool!
There are both free play opportunities and directed learning activities set up for the children each day. We believe that through play, children learn what no one can teach them. Play is not just a pleasurable activity for children when they are not actively learning. Play is a child's major way of learning, a leading activity that determines a child's development . Play is the natural language of children. Play Is A Child's Work. At “Learn and Play Preschool” we allow children to explore their world in a fun and stimulating environment.
