Sundrops Playschool is a child-centered, play-based preschool. We believe that kids learn through play, and kids at our school spend most of their day in self-directed activity. 

We are inspired by many of Maria Montessori's principles of early childhood education. At our school, children are honored by providing loving respect for their autonomy & personhood.

Sundrops Playschool hopes to be a cozy, home-like environment. We strive to be cherished members of a parent's "village." 

Above all, protecting our children's health, safety, and emotional well-being is the top priority at Sundrops Playschool. 

Also known as evening primrose, Sundrops are a yellow flowering plant native to our region. 

At Sundrops Playschool, our full time teachers make a living wage, with automatic annual cost-of-living raises, plus paid time off, free childcare, and free primary care from Plum Health.
