Our Philosophy:

A cheerful, warm atmosphere where children learn through exploring a wide variety of educational materials. Play And Learn Center helps your child grow in five ways:

THINK AND DO in a variety of academic activities.

EXPLORE AND DISCOVER the world around them.

EXPRESS AND CREATE their original ideas.

SHARE AND CARE for themselves and those around them.

MOVE AND GROW in large and small muscle development.

 

Our Playground:

To assure the safety of our children, we have two designated areas: one for infant, toddlers & twos and the other area for preschool, pre-k and kindergarten. Play and Learn provides playgrounds with turf surfaces that are fenced in. A separate parking lot provides separate parking for the parents and staff for easy and safe pick-up and drop off of your children.
