Play-Based Learning

Part of our child-directed philosophy is play-based learning. We value play as a means of developmentally appropriate learning. Play encourages independence and offers the opportunity to explore in a setting that has been thoughtfully established for this purpose.

Process Art

We believe the process of making art is more important than the outcome. Adults guide children by providing the right materials, teaching technique and assisting along the way. When children take charge of their own creative process, they practice critical thinking, make their own decisions and build confidence.


According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)  process art is highly developmentally appropriate for the preschool classroom, citing a number of benefits:

  • Process Art nurtures social and emotional health, reinforcing such skills as relaxation, focus, self-esteem and emotional sharing.

  • It helps to build such cognitive skills as comparison, prediction, planning and problem-solving.

  • This form of art encourages the development of fine motor skills like painting, cutting and gluing.

  • Process Art may also help to build the skills of verbal expression and language if the child chooses to discuss his or her work.
