about the center
Learn & Play provides children, parents and educators with a unique experience:
- A friendly, nurturing, ethical, and professional environment.
- An open door and transparency policy built around sharing the successes and struggles of teaching and learning. Parents, educators, and stakeholders share their concerns and offer suggestions in a welcoming accepting environment.
- A good reporting system on children's development.
- A safe and secure environment for children offering well designed premises, high quality toys and supplies, healthy nutritious meals, surveillance cameras.
- Modern and fresh facilities with a distinguished design that provides room for every needed function- from classrooms to play areas and from offices to a full-fledged theater.
A unique curriculum balancing child’s initiated play and structured activities with a stimulating half hour class rotation.
At Learn & Play we emphasize on the child’s development, rather than focusing on his age, because all children grow and learn at their own pace, and in their own unique way. Activities are designed to address the individual needs and abilities of each child, in each classroom.
Our program stimulates and exposes learning concepts in a fun and engaging way with a focus on reaching and mastering emerging milestones. We explore:
- Cognitive development
- Language development and communication
- Physical development and health
- Social and emotional development
Individual and group experiences allow children to interact with each other, as well as their environment. In addition, classrooms have been specially designed to be comforting and stimulating, and to further maximize teacher-child interactions and learning.
child care safety, health, & security
Education and development are important, but we know that nothing matters more than the safety, security and health of your child. That’s why protection and readiness are critical considerations in everything we do at Learn & Play.
From first aid training for emergency situations to sanitation and ensuring a clean and healthy environment for children, Learn & Play has more than 16 years of experience ensuring that every child is happy and healthy:
- The outdoor play areas are wrapped in secure fencing and equipped with age appropriate child proof toys ensuring that children enjoy outdoor play safely.
- We have strict policies for administering medication to your child to ensure they are protected.
- There are emergency evacuation plans found on each floor, as well as smoke detectors and fire extinguishers.
- The center is secured with an eye-scan system to control access to the center.
- Classrooms are cleaned throughout the day with safe, non-toxic cleaning products.

food & nutrition
At Learn & Play, we strongly believe that mealtime is a time for learning about nutrition, hand washing, table manners, conversations and motor skills, as well as, an opportunity to try new food.
- Teachers create an environment to help children develop healthy eating habits.
- The center offers high-quality nutritious meals: breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.
- All meals have a balance of items from different food groups (meat and chicken, bread and grains, fruits and vegetables).
- If the child has a special nutritional need, allergy or requires an adaptation to our menu, Learn & Play works with the parents to create a plan that adequately meets the child’s needs.
