The Play School is here to meet your Indianapolis child care needs from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Full-time and part-time schedules are available to accommodate your family's needs. Full-time families, who attend four or five days per week, also enjoy sibling discounts. And, all our families receive two weeks of tuition-free vacation time every year. Contact us to schedule a tour.
If you prefer a part time schedule, we are one of only a few Indianapolis child care centers offering that option for all children—ages 6 weeks to 12 years. For school-age children, we provide before- and after-school transportation during the school year and a fun-filled “4 Kidz Only Club” during the summer.
Whatever your family’s needs, we are delighted to provide an enriching experience for your child, and we hope to make your life a little easier, too. Through ongoing, open communication with you, we want to make The Play School feel like a home away from home for your child.
Since it first opened in 1988, the mission of The Play School has stayed the same:
To provide children with consistent, high quality, loving, nurturing, stimulating, and safe environments; to incorporate parents’ personal values, desires and input; to attend to each child’s unique learning characteristics and foster the development of their individuality and self esteem.
After more than 27 years, The Play School is still providing quality Indianapolis child care at its Saxony, Legacy and Arbor Village locations. We invite you to come see if The Play School is the right choice for your child and your family.
An education degree and teaching career gave The Play School’s founder, Rita Hafner, the knowledge and experience she needed to start a successful, curriculum-based Indianapolis child care center. However, it’s her honest and sincere affection for children and their families that keeps her passionate and motivated. Rita’s ongoing labor of love results in caring, nurturing environments that use play to stimulate children:
Your decision to choose safe, secure and loving care for your child is deeply personal and often difficult. We invite you to ask us questions, take a tour, interview families and see for yourself what has made The Play School a long-trusted, Indianapolis child care destination.
