Who We Are

P.L.A.Y. Silver Lake Preschool is a Montessori based community driven preschool located in the center of Silver lake on Hyperion and Lyric Ave. P.L.A.Y. Silver Lake is the long time realization of more then 40 years of combined teaching experience from a mother son duo. Trained in the teaching philosophy of Maria Montessori, P.L.A.Y. Silver Lake excels in teaching children about the wonders found in and out of the classroom.

We believe that children thrive best when in a program that allows them to express who they are both in and out of the classroom. Children are presented with materials in the classroom that allows them to push themselves. Outside the children are able to explore the space around them in an environment that is safe and exciting.

At P.L.A.Y. Silver Lake we encourage children to take pride in their strengths and push through their physical and mental boundaries. We are licensed by the state of California department of health and social services.

Our Philosophy

The program practices at P.L.A.Y. Silver Lake Preschool are based on our beliefs about how children learn and deserve to be treated. The importance of families is paramount to a successful school environment, as well as the role of teachers in making it all happen.

P.L.A.Y. Silver Lake strives to educate young children about the world and people who inhabit it.

It is our philosophy that children learn at their own pace with the help and guidance of an experienced and educated staff.

It is our belief that children naturally grow through interactions amongst themselves where the environment around them is nurturing, safe and natural. Young children’s developmental tasks are designed to build trust, learn social skills, construct their knowledge of the physical and social world, and develop positive self esteem. These tasks are best supported by our program which provides developmentally appropriate activities, well trained and consistent staff, and a safe, healthy and challenging learning environment.
