"Creating a vibrant community of play, literacy and arts for young learners and their families."
Our unique curriculum, schedule and not profit status allows The P.L.A.Y. School to further our mission of helping young learners and their families in the following ways:
Give children a love of learning and confidence in themselves and their abilities.
Prepare children for the rigors of today’s elementary school programs by including play and arts-based experiences that incorporate Early Childhood standards and Florida state Kindergarten standards.
Provide a flexible schedule that promotes family involvement. Along with their child, we provide opportunities for parents to learn, build friendships, prepare for the next step, and find support here.
Ensure that each individual child’s strengths and challenges are recognized and supported through scaffolded learning experiences, services provided in-house, and collaboration with community agencies.
“Play is the highest form of research”
At the P.L.A.Y. School, we believe that each young learner is unique and grasps concepts in his/her own way. We therefore design our lessons with a variety of learning styles in mind. Children are meant to deeply explore the world around them, and they learn the most when given the chance to learn through movement, art, music and play. When schools use a play-based curriculum, all children benefit.
Play at School Develops Children in 4 Ways:
