Children at Play Philosophy

Utilizing a progressive educational philosophy with an emphasis on play-based approach, we allow children to grow and learn in a developmentally appropriate and caring environment. 


A gentle routine guides the children throughout their day. Days begin and end with songs, stories, and opportunities for outdoor play.  Our classrooms are located only blocks away from the shores of Lake Champlain guaranteeing lots of opportunities for exploring our natural world. 


Judaism is carefully woven into the curriculum providing a gentle introduction to our culture, history, and community.  Our curriculum is guided by opportunities for the children to celebrate, play, eat, learn and sing through the cycles of the Jewish year. Challah is baked and enjoyed each Friday during our Shabbos celebration.
