"Playful learning describes a learning context in which children learn content while playing freely (free play or self-directed play), with teacher guidance (guided play), or in a structured game.

From Ms. Stephanie, our talented infant teacher:"Watching our youngest students (ages 4 months to 7 months) at CJP learn the core values through exploring and play has been one of the most rewarding years of my career! I have been a part of all their firsts - first sounds, first rolls, first crawls, first steps, first signs, and even some first words! Allowing the kids to explore with the provocations has taught them kavod, limud, kehillah, and b'tzelem Elohim! Now they are between 14 months and 17 months! We can't wait to see how they continue to grow here at CJP!"Wishing everyone a fabulous summer, we can't wait to see your smiling faces back here in August ☀️☀️☀️ ... See MoreSee Less

Who could we be talking about? The Little Explorers, of course! Ms. Jenn and Ms. Christy captured some beautiful moments with their students this year, and now they'll be movin' on up to the 3s!
