Play Pals Preschool Program: Play Pals Preschool is an inter-professional, group program for children ages 2-5 years. The preschool uses evidence-based and theoretical practices with a play-based approach and a small adult to child ratio.
Play Pals is provided by a Learning Specialist, Speech-Language Pathologist, and Occupational Therapist.
Our mission is to assist preschool-aged children of all abilities in the development of critical communication, social, emotional, sensory, and behavioral skills in order for each child to reach his/her full potential.
The program runs every day from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM, but you can choose for your child to attend anywhere between 2 to 5 sessions a week.
Your child will be grouped with up to 6 other children where they will focus on play, social skills, and academics aligned with the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards.
“My son thrived in his play-based preschool. I watched his confidence grow, friendships develop, and saw him learn through play, exploration and discovery. Academics were integrated, setting a strong foundation for kindergarten, but delivered in a more appealing way, through play, that focused on the whole child - social, emotional and cognitive. It provided the perfect balance of exploration and structure. I have observed my son’s class and watched how the children successfully share ideas, toys, and materials -skills that helped develop social skills and build friendships. This year he will be entering kindergarten, and I have full confidence in his preparation thanks to the foundation set by his preschool. Play was the vehicle for him developing the creativity, resiliency, self-regulation, and speech and language skills needed to confidently transition to elementary school. We are thankful to his teachers because his love for learning grows every day."
