The PlayCare Center
Richmond and Berlin, Vermont
The PlayCare Center is a children’s facility designed to meet the developmental needs of children ages six weeks through five years. The emphasis of our program is on encouraging creative and expressive play as well as skill based learning. Children will be provided with a broad range of opportunities which will enable them to build a solid foundation for the future.
Through age appropriate projects, hands on activities and imaginative play, children will start to build the skills they will need to be successful in school and throughout life. Children will learn how to reason, develop social skills and techniques. Through experimentation and play, curiosity and inquisitiveness will be encouraged. Children will also be provided with guidance as they learn to cope with the thoughts, feelings and reactions surrounding normal events and experiences of childhood.
We believe that play is the “work” of childhood. Through play, children develop social skills and acquire an understanding of universal concepts. Play encourages curiosity and inquisitiveness. Play also provides a safe vehicle for children to deal with the feelings, concerns and behavior surrounding normal events and experiences of childhood.
