“Play is the highest form of research.”

-Albert Einstein

Founded in 1954, many families across the city are well acquainted with our secular school. When the school was established, our play-based pedagogic model was virtually the only form of early childhood education.  While other educational approaches have been introduced or developed since then, we continue to hold play at our core. PAMDS is the home of ‘Playful Inquiry’. Through constructive and meaningful play experiences and ‘Cycles of Inquiry’, children not only learn what they need to know, but also acquire the skills that they need to be successful learners and citizens beyond preschool.
