Playful Learning’s Primary Lab provides young children, ages 3 through Pre-Kindergarten, with engaging lessons, access to inspiring materials, and our highly specialized instruction.

Children at this age are developmentally ready and eager to master important academic and social skills. Our interdisciplinary approach offers them the opportunity to engage in playful activities that build and strengthen phonemic awareness, letter formation, number sense, fine motor development, and many other important cognitive and life skills.

With an inspiring classroom environment, designed specifically for early childhood, students are able to independently explore, engage, connect, and learn. By tapping into each child’s innate curiosity, we nurture their natural desire to dive deeply into academic endeavors, seek answers to their questions, and master important skills.

Our Studio Garden and Outdoor Classroom bring the natural environment into our learning experiences through daily outdoor explorations and investigations. These experiences spark curiosity, nurture a spirit of adventure, and instill a love of the natural world.


Playful Learning’s early childhood programs offer our youngest students an engaging, small-group experience that encourages aspiring explorers to embark on:



Playful Learning is a method of early childhood education that artfully brings together play and learning. Through our expertly curated curriculum and classrooms, students playfully work their way through thoughtfully planned, interdisciplinary, thematic explorations. 

From the toddlers who courageously separate for the first time, to the pre-kers who enthusiastically work towards cracking the phonetic code—and every age in between—Playful Learning is here to help children and families thrive through the early childhood years.

BUT, enough from us, you should really come in and see for yourself!
