We are a parent ~ teacher cooperative school located on the East Side of Providence. With Toddler, Nursery and Preschool programs, our curriculum is structured around the philosophy that children learn best through play.

As a cooperative, we differ in many ways from other preschool programs. Parents and teachers work together to create a positive early educational experience for our children. Child's Play is a network of families, friends and teachers who are enriched through the active participation in making the school run.

children learn best through play

We have a wonderfully experienced staff that provides a safe, supportive and nurturing classroom for our children. Small class sizes with 5:1 ratio and an exceptional facility with large, bright rooms and full indoor and outdoor play areas ensures that each child receives a rich, fostering learning environment in their early, formative years.

Child's Play is licensed by DCYF, is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and has a 5-star rating in BrightStars, Rhode island's Quality Rating System.
