About Play N' Learn Academy

Play N' Learn Academy is an academically based school, where we inspire children to explore the different ways of learning. We focus on development of the "whole child" by promoting social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Our educational standards are established by the STARS program, knowledge of child development, and researched methods of teaching. Standards are guided by the STARS program. Being a STAR facility means that our program standards are built for the maximum potential for early care and education of our participants. We support learning culturally, linguistically, and authentically through family relationships that have meaning and purpose. We support Early Childcare through staff education and by using the Project Approach. Our environments have been created to promote exploration while encouraging independence that meets the individual needs of a child.

I wouldn’t trust any other daycare for my kiddos! My daughter is now 18 and my son is 11...Play N Learn Academy was their other home away from home! Best place ever you will not find a better place to put your kids or other people to trust to take care of them the way these great folks did for mine! Miss all of you thank you for everything you have done for us!
