It is generally accepted that an early learning program gives a preschooler an advantage in later years, including better social interactions, concentration and the ability to learn in general.

Beyond Conventional Preschool
While it may seem like a preschooler is doing nothing but playing in the classroom all day, nothing could be further from the truth. At Learn n' Play, play based learning appeals to the child’s innate curiosity and need to participate in activities based on their interests and developing skills. Besides being fun, it supports the child learning about their self and the world around them. Our educators thoughtfully organize the classroom to facilitate play experiences that will enhance the child’s development in all areas.
