Among the announcements in early-2016 for new Bok school tenants was Project P.L.A.Y. School. The play-based preschool is for children between the ages of 27-months-old and 5-years-old.
Now that school is in session, here’s a peek at the new classroom space at Bok.
Since 2005, Project P.L.A.Y. has been based out of Elkins Park under the direction of educators Karen Chayot and Kathy Goldenberg. The preschool program uses the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education, with an emphasis on encouraging play and creating relationships with friends, family and the community.
In addition to the indoor classroom space, an outdoor space is being created for the school thanks to the Knight Foundation grant Scout Ltd. received to make a “South Philly stoop.”
