St. Mary's Creative Playschool provides a preschool environment designed to help children build self-confidence and a positive self-image. We work on developing social skills, fine and gross motor skills, gaining an understanding of the teacher-pupil relationship, and becoming comfortable in a classroom setting away from home.
"St. Mary's is an Anchorage gem. The teachers who work at The Playschool are loving, creative, playful, and dedicated. The classrooms are so welcoming and beautiful, they are full of ever-changing content and engaging activities and set off by cozy natural light. The outdoor space is far and away the best I saw of any preschool in town, its huge and features a balanced variety of man-made and natural elements. My son has adored his two years at St. Mary's and we are so grateful that he got to spend his preschool years at this wonderful school. I highly recommend The Playschool."
"Best preschool! Let’s kids be kids like thy should be. I’ve been a parent or part of the board, off and on, for over 11 yrs and it only gets better with every passing year. Love this place!!!"
"This is a warm and wonderful family school. My children have excelled socially and more open to learning academically as result of their experiences at the Playschool. We are impressed with the teachers loving, caring and trustworthy openness toward making my children and each child in their classes feel so nurtured. The play based learning is a great concept allowing the children to thrive and be introduced to new things in such a nurturing and social environment."
WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
Our classrooms are designed to encourage children to explore what interests them, touch what intrigues them, talk, listen, run, help out, and play through a combination of self-directed times and more structured activities. Teachers and parents act as guides in this developmental process, but also follow the children's leads.
