Millbrook Community Preschool

May 21, 2018 • Millbrook, NY

Millbrook Community Preschool at Grace Church is a small, village-based preschool for three to five-year-olds. Beginning with a less-than-ideal space and a passionate vision for play-centered learning, Millbrook worked with Community Playthings room planners to create a compelling environment for children to play and learn.

  • Millbrook directors explain how they dreamed, planned, and worked to make their vision of a play-based center a reality.

“As educators, we always have to be willing to adapt, rethink, and re-imagine until we get it right. We have a moral imperative to make this a wonderful first learning experience for children.” Maureen Sarma, Program Director 2013-2017
