Giocare is proud to have a preschool alternative playgroup at the Play Spot. Children 18 mos.+ are eligible to enroll. This is a great program – perfect for families who are looking for a playgroup/preschool experience without the longer day.

Daily routine includes circle time and read aloud, project time, center time, snack time, outdoor time and music and movement. Primary focus is centered around social/emotional and language development and our approach is inquiry-based with an emphasis put on open-ended experiences and exploration and discovery.

The lead teacher, Jessica Clunn, holds a Masters in Education from Hunter College and holds her professional teaching certificate in both Early Childhood and Childhood Education. She has been teaching in early childhood for more than 10 years.
