“Go and love someone exactly as they are. And then watch how quickly they transform into the greatest, truest version of themselves. When one feels seen and appreciated in their own essence, one is instantly empowered.”

Circle of Expanded Boundaries

Re-imagining the model of early childhood education

We believe that expansive environments encourage creativity and higher learning, while narrow boundaries engender conformity and constrained learning.

We’re different . . . and the reason we’re different is because of a feeling that has grown throughout years of working in childcare, running and launching new centers, hiring and training, and all that comes with the wonderfully complex, challenging, and rewarding world of early childhood education.

We know because we’ve seen it, that children thrive when they are able to express their creative inclinations, and struggle with too much structure and control.

Early childhood education professionals have been trained to perceive their role as “managing” children, while our model is to inspire children to be the very best versions of themselves. This means loosening the boundaries and providing a less rigid, play-based environment.

The best way to describe it is with the circle graphic that you see on this page. The inner circle represents the model of traditional early childhood education. The outer circle is the Kids at Play model. Outside the circle would be an unsafe environment. 

The graphic illustrates that while we loosen the boundaries, we are very clear about where our boundaries lie so as to ensure a safe environment physically and emotionally. And the purpose is to inspire children to be the awesome selves that they are.
