Play as You Learn Preschool is located in the heart of Cotati and we have been open since July 2018. All of The teachers in our school have degrees in the field of Early Childhood Education to give your children the best quality learning and playful experience.

Play as You Learn believes in providing real-life, hands-on experiences as well as free-range, independent activities that fosters your students physical, cognitive and social/emotional development. At our school, children are available to explore ideas independently, while also working together collaboratively in learning and discovery. Our primary focus is always social/emotional development of the child in their daily experiences, this allows the children a leadership role in their daily learning environment(s).

At the school we use Emergent Curriculum. Through emergent curriculum, students are free to lead by their interests. The planning and implementing of the students ideas are done as a group, so that the teaching team has all materials provided for the student’s needs.

Our families, students and teaching team are ALL very important to the community of the preschool. This type of approach helps us to better understand and work together for our schools environment.
