Mission & philosophy

Red Hook Playgroup provides a rich, progressive, community-based early education for children between the ages of 2.6 and 5. We believe that all children have the desire, ability, and motivation to learn, and we seek to nurture these natural impulses by providing a beautiful, supportive, and stimulating environment to encourage all the young minds in our care.

RHP believes preschool education is an investment in the community, and we hope to encourage that sensibility in each of our students. To this end, RHP fosters an environment of collaborative exploration, investigation, and discovery where children are encouraged to think critically and creatively, to respect and support their peers, and to empathize with and learn from each member of their community.

RHP is a loving, warm, supportive, child-centered place and they take cultivating the minds of children very seriously.
