We have been thoroughly impressed to see our son's growth during this short time at The Children's Playhouse. His teachers have nurtured his love of learning. They helped to lay a solid foundation of beginning reading skills. This has truly been an amazing experience for our daughter. We watched her burst out of her shell. The teachers are loving, kind and sensitive to the needs of their students. The Playhouse has surpassed my expectations. I'm amazed at the teachers' abilities to pack so much into the curriculum and still maintain a high quality program.


The Children's Playhouse, established in 1984, was developed to provide an atmosphere of emotional security and intellectual challenge. Young children are like sponges, soaking up more information faster than at any other time of life. The neurological basis for all feeling and learning is established during the child's first four years. During this time we have a unique opportunity to create the foundation for all future learning. The most important element to a solid foundation is high self-esteem.
