Why Learning At Play Is So Important…And Fun!

Walk into any of our schools and you might think that the kids are just “playing” but in actuality their little brains are hard at work.

When they are on the playground, they are strengthening the gross motor skills that help them with muscle control, balance and coordination.

When they are playing with cars or dolls, coloring shapes or painting they are sharpening their fine motor skills—strengthening the muscles in their hands and wrists.

And when they are singing, dancing and playing games they’re developing the social and emotional skills that help them understand how to build relationships and communicate.

Every new skill they learn keeps them advancing onto the next. They progressively learn more complex physical skills, like jumping rope; more intricate fine motor skills like writing or using scissors; and more complicated emotional skills like identifying and talking about their feelings.

And it’s all done under the guise of play.

Children learn best when they feel motivated, comfortable and encouraged. That’s why our programs don’t utilize forced or artificial curriculum. We focus on the needs and interests of the children and use the guidance of our loving teachers to show the way.

Our curriculum is based on a unique teaching framework called Learn-At-Play™. We utilize a number of solid tools, teaching tactics and applications to accomplish our educational goals for children, all disguised in fun and engaging activities.

Children are naturally curious. They are active learners that love investigating, experimenting, designing, and creating their own unique masterpieces. We want to nurture those natural instincts and help children learn about the world in a way that will excite them and instill in them a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their entire lives.
