UNLOCKING EVERY CHILDS POTENTIAL

We know that a superior educational foundation successfully prepares each child for a lifetime of curiosity and investigation, while building self-esteem and an enduring love of learning.

At EduPlay Discovery Center, your child’s first educational experiences will be happy and successful! Our graduates enter school thoroughly prepared, excited about learning, and eager to participate—all invaluable as a launching point for your child’s education for years to come.

 

OUR MISSION

EduPlay Discovery Center was founded on a mission to cultivate and nurture young minds by educating children through play.  Our program reflects our beliefs of discovery and education through play and exploration.  We strive to prepare children academically, socially, physically, and emotionally for future educational and life experiences. We believe that children will become independent, successful and eager to learn how to creatively solve problems and express their ideas and feelings.

REGGIO EMILIA PHILOSOPHY

At EduPlay, we believe in the Reggio Emilia approach to child education. The Reggio Emilia Approach is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient; children rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it.

AT EDUPLAY DISCOVERY CENTER, WE BELIEVE

…that children are born with a natural ability to learn from their surroundings and experiences.

…that all children have the right to a safe, loving and nurturing environment in which to grow and explore the world.

…in the collaboration between children, teachers, parents and community.

…the educator’s job is to support and deepen the innate affinity towards learning.

…that open and honest communication and dialogue among educators and families is a cornerstone to positive experiences for children.

…that all individuals are unique in their perspective and have the right to share their ideas in a respectful environment.

…in a high level of accountability of all to support the school environment.
