About Us

At Play Date Preschool and School Age, we believe play is an important avenue for learning and for enjoyment.  In play, children are creatively manipulating materials, exploring and testing concepts, and rehearsing roles.  Children test, explore, discover, adapt, classify, organize, and reorganize their experiences as they play.  Play demands initiative, imagination, and purposefulness, and playful interaction with other children is essential for healthy personality development.  The positive experiences and successes associated with play foster the child’s positive self-concept.

We are dedicated to a loving and nurturing teaching style in which the children will experience respect, consistency, and encouragement.  Above all, we are committed to physical and emotional safety of all children.

Our goal for children as learners is that they become autonomous, self-directed individuals with a strong sense of self worth and an “I can do it” attitude.  We strive for each child to view learning as both exciting and stimulating.  With this emphasis, children become problem-seekers as well as problem-solvers.  

Our programs respond to today's growing need for upscale childcare facilities for children between the ages of 2 – 5 years of age and 6 – 10 years of age.  Play Date Preschool and School Age’s licensed programs are located in the subdivision of Glenshire in beautiful Truckee, CA.  We offer a variety of program options for families of the neighboring communities of Prosser, Sierra Meadows / Ponderosa, Tahoe Donner, Squaw Valley, and others between the hours of 7:30am and 5:30pm.
