Who We Are
Kids at Play is a place-based learning environment for children ages six weeks through first grade. We make use of some elements of traditional childcare but we’re nature based and we practice child-led education.
We believe children are innately capable and competent, and we honor each child’s unique way of experiencing the world. Our job is to create the space for children to have a voice to collaborate in their learning.
We create a place of shared relationships among children, teachers and parents, and a feeling of belonging in a world that is alive, welcoming, and authentic. We are similar to the teaching philosophy of Montesori and Waldorf but more affordable.
We are focused on each child’s individual journey, rather than reaching a destination — allowing time and space in a living environment that is dynamic, forming, evolving, and encourages real-life interactions.
At Kids at Play, we’re learning the natural way.

as an obstacle instead of an opportunity.”
