Welcome to Katonah Village Kids
From the very moment its roots were first planted in 1957, the original Katonah Playschool promised to be a leader in the field of early childhood education. This strong and secure school has witnessed generations of children and their families grow, learn, and develop over its almost sixty year history. Located in the village of Katonah, this gem truly encompassed what it means to reside in our fabulous community.
With this, we introduce Katonah Village Kids. Just like a village, people should feel part of it; to feel connected to it. We want this not only for our children, but for their families as well.
A progressive, process-oriented approach to early childhood education, where children are encouraged to do the work of children….play!
Children learn best through meaningful play, and our daily play-based activities are designed to foster intellectual, creative, social, emotional, and physical growth. Our integrated, comprehensive approach to early learning offers a healthy balance between child-directed and teacher-guided activities. Children learn by doing; moving from concrete, hands-on experiences to more abstract concepts. We believe in supporting positive relationships and respectful interactions, and aim to inspire a caring, cooperative learning environment.
