Playgarden Pren Online - Our Story Playgarden Pren Online - Our Story

OUR STORY

Since our founding, Playgarden has focused on creating educational and developmental programs for the youngest children. Through the expertise of certified Montessori teachers, physical and cognitive therapists, special needs educators, and visual and musical artists, we developed educational programs for children ages 18 months to 5 years.

Playgarden opened a new location in the Upper East Side in 2017 to focus exclusively on formal early learning, tailoring the space to create a nurturing, enriching environment to impart our Playgarden Prep Classes.

In 2019 we started working on providing access to our early education programs online, which were made available to families in the fall of 2020.

Over the last couple of years at Playgarden Online, we've strived to make sure families are able to have the best learning possible while at home. We've created a comprehensive online preschool program for little ones learning at home all week, a Play and Learn program for families that want to complement the education they receive at school or daycare, and different learning tools that add new layers of learning, such as DIY educational materials and educational toys.

At Playgarden we have always believed in whole child development. This has become even more important during the pandemic, as children have been subject to all sorts of restrictions for the last 2 years. This is why we have made all of our curriculum that relates to wellbeing—Topics like Social and Emotional Development, Physical Health, Nutrition, and even Sleep are available online, in addition to being incorporated in our various programs.

WELLBEING

At Playgarden Prep, our goal is to promote and support wellness during the early years. We've created a series of videos, activities, and printables with the goal of helping children with their social and emotional development. We believe that this type of support is more important now than ever before; young children have grown up in a world of COVID-related disruptions, including limited social interactions. Our unique content is focused on building a foundation of wellness and generating positive emotional opportunities for little ones 2-5 years old!
