This systemic, hands-on program teaches early literacy and mathematics skills through activities and games. We combine the communal spirit of the one-room school house and the research–based evidence of small group instruction. This sophisticated approach incorporates the various needs of every learner. Our multi-sensory and multi-modality program can also be used to train parents and caregivers on how to address these basic skills at home. In addition, P.L.A.Y. can be utilized in the classroom or as a homework supplement. Although this original program is designed for ages 3-8, all methods and materials can also be used effectively by all children throughout the school year, as an after-school or summer program.
