Mt. Airy Philadelphia In-Home Daycare

Our Program

Our homelike preschool consists of a small group of mixed-aged children 2 through 5 years of age. We offer many educational activities and allow time for free play and rest. We believe that routines are very important to give children a sense of predictable order and security.

Our healthy daily life rhythms include:

  • simple artistic handworks
  • music and body movement
  • imaginative play
  • story time and puppetry
  • nature exploration
  • cooking and baking organic snacks

Our daily activities incorporate the themes related to the seasons, holidays, birthdays and other special events. It is very flexible and a child who doesn’t want to participate in group activities can engage in the activities of his or her interests. Our playroom is set up with a variety of Waldorf inspired toys and play areas. During our summer camp (from June to August), we tend to spend more time outdoors exploring the natural environment and water play. All year round, we learn, play, and just have fun.
