The Children's Place is a preschool open to all families of all faiths; teachers emphasize improving basic cognitive skills through problem-solving activities. Enrichment programs include music, movement and vocabulary and special-needs children may be accompanied by an aide. The children also enjoy weekly walks within the neighborhood and visit the park, explore the beach, visit the local fire station, library and the stores on Main Street. All staff members are active in state and local professional associations. The staff also participates in continuous in-service education and is trained in CPR.
