Why Choose Paradise Place?

We are a REGGIO EMILIA inspired play-based Preschool. The Reggio Emilia philosophy is an approach to teaching, learning and advocacy for children. In its most basic form, it is a way of observing what children know, are curious about and what challenges them. Reggio Emilia Inspired. What does it mean?
Our staff has over 50 years of combined experience. There is no substitute for experience. At Paradise Place, we have invested in fine tuning the formula for success as a preschool and early childhood education provider. Paradise Place itself was established over 25 years ago. We have longevity in our staff and we combine that with programs that have stood the test of time.
If you are not completely satisfied, we'll refund your money. Because we are confident of our quality in education, our 50 years of experience, and because we built this school on the premise that the child and our community's families come first, if you are not completely satisfied after your first two weeks, we will refund your tuition.
We offer spacious and separate classrooms and have a new state-of-the-art playground. All of our classrooms are separated by age and developmental stages. This allows us to focus on the needs of a particular age group and helps your child bond with their teacher and becomes more comfortable within their space and routine. Our playground was installed in 2014 and offers your child plenty of room to run and play.
Our Curriculum and learning activities are developed for each child. However, we primarily use creative curriculum in conjunction with the Reggio Emilia inspired approach, that is just a base for the really important stuff: Personalized curriculum for each child enrolled based off their current level of development. Your child will get his or her very own learning plan to help them become ready for elementary school. Kindergarten readiness is very important to us and we utilize an assessment program that goes with them from Paradise Place to their kindergarten teachers.
We have an Adventure based summer camp! Our summer camp is one of the most popular in the community! Our summer camp is for our preschoolers up to first graders and they absolutely love it. We take the normal preschool experience and change into a summer camp like routine with new experiences for the kids. We venture into the outdoors and engage the child in their surroundings. (We love taking advantage of the beautiful place we live!)
