‘Play is the highest form of research.’

- Albert Einstein

If you believe that the tools of imagination are what build a happy childhood...

If you believe that play is the instinctual drive that children use to learn…

 If you believe that kids belong outside, then welcome to our Buckeye world…

Buckeye’s True-Play Pre-K uses play to invite the natural curiosity, creativity and boundless energy of young seeds. Together we create a joyful learning environment where our learners can begin to discover who they are, what they love and things they are great at. 

Through play, our seeds explore their surroundings - socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically. Each child is unique, and at True-Play our teachers focus on the interests and strengths of each child, helping them develop a strong foundation and love of learning.  At Buckeye, we do not push; we invite, we inspire, we listen to and we meet kids where they are while providing them with the tools and support they need to develop their intellectual interests.

We challenge our young seeds with hands-on activities and wide open spaces, while creating opportunities for them to connect with Buckeye seeds in older pods. We find that often the biggest motivation for a child to master a new skill, is to see an older child doing it.  

‘Research shows that younger students work exponentially

 better when trying to model older students.’

- Dr. Gabrielle Baker, Ph.D.

Buckeye's Pre-K is unique because our younger seeds connect with our older Buckeye seeds throughout the day where they have many opportunities to learn from one another. Our Pre-K program is open for learners 3 or older who are able to independently use and ask to use the restroom. In an effort to support our families and allow for flexible schedules, we now offer two, three and 5 day programs both half - 9am to 1pm and full - 9am to 3pm days.
