WELCOME TO PAPER MOON PLAYGROUP
Paper Moon prepares children for Pre-K, kindergarten and beyond, in a structured and nurturing learning environment. We help children discover their learning style while engaging in learning activities and group play. Our staff is dedicated to providing the foundation for children as they prepare for school.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM...
We use interactive and imaginative group play to help your child to develop strong social skills. Our students engage in different types of social interaction and build confidence and learning skills through activities like music, outdoor play, make-believe, theater, and cooking! Through activities like quiet-reading time, and craft making, your child also has the opportunity to work and learn independently, reinforcing the idea that there is a time to be independent and a time to be part of a group.
We seek to strengthen your child's natural method of learning and help them refine other learning styles. Regular activities including storytelling, dance, art, and field trips provide exposure to new concepts and learning styles to help your child develop.
REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS
I just wanted to write a quick endorsement for Paper Moon playgroup, which I feel is one of the best-kept secrets in Park Slope. I sent my daughter to Paper Moon three mornings a week for two years and it was the perfect solution for our family. As a freelancer I needed time to work without distractions, but found babysitters could be costly, unpredictable and stuck in your apartment when the weather was crummy. This program provided my daughter with the structure, socialization and instruction she needed to be ready for Pre-K this year. The teachers were so loving and helpful. They helped me potty train her and overcome her extreme separation anxiety. My daughter thrived at Paper Moon while I was able to do my freelance work uninterrupted at a fraction of the cost of hiring a sitter/nanny. I know they are accepting applications for next year and I wanted to promote this gem of a program with other parents looking for an affordable preschool/playgroup solution.”
“My son completed the Paper Moon Playschool two's program in the Spring, and I cannot say enough good things! Ms. Ashley and Ms. Amy made a great team of teachers, and they are so organized. Each week had a different theme, and I noticed he was starting to recognize his letters and colors very early on. In fact, he shocked us all when, very early in the school year, he pulled out a magnet letter from a pile, and identified the "J." "It's J for Julian," he told us. We knew that was because of Paper Moon! If you are looking for a "warm up" to preschool for your two-year old (I think the rule is your child has to turn two by December,) consider Paper Moon. It's located right in center slope, and is close to the park, and I know they do a few field trips during the year to take advantage of that!”
