Our programs are developmentally appropriate, focus on the whole child and his or her physical, emotional, social, and intellectual needs, and are largely guided by the interests and needs of the children in our programs and their families. We welcome children of all abilities in our programs.

Throughout our program design is a strong emphasis on learning through play as well as opportunities for discovery, hands-on-activities, and guided choices which serve to enrich learning. The children are offered a balance of child-initiated and teacher-directed activities which alternate in quiet and active periods.

Play Centers, Inc. has expanded to include Five Preschool programs, known as Play and Learn. These programs provide care and education for children, infants through Pre- K, and are located in Baltimore County, Baltimore City, and Anne Arundel County.
