Our Playschool is a non-profit, parent-run cooperative affiliated with the HHBH Community Association. We believe the classroom should be happy, stimulating and playful; encouraging each child to maintain a healthy, natural desire to cooperate and learn. Overall, our program is rooted in kindness — we are kind to ourselves, kind to each other and kind to our classroom.
