Childcare Philosophy in Chester, New Hampshire

Here at Play Laugh N’ Grow, our philosophy is to provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment for your child. We believe that the first few years of life are the most important, helping to lay the foundation for intellectual and emotional development. We take great care to provide a fun, safe and comfortable environment for your child, while also ensuring they have the guidance and structure they need to succeed. Our job is to make sure that your child has many positive experiences throughout their day!

Children learn by exploring the world around them, using their five senses to gather information and use it to expand their knowledge. Simply put: Children learn by doing! We feel that the most important goal of an early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners. We encourage children to be creative explorers who are not afraid to try new ideas, while also nurturing each child’s different ideas and imagination. We want children to be inquisitive, self-confident, and independent learners!

Children also need to feel confident in their interactions with the world around them. We focus on meeting the educational needs of each child by providing developmentally appropriate curriculum. We strive to make sure at the end of each day, your child goes home feeling happy and proud of themselves; eager to express their day with you!


Our objective is to provide a safe, wholesome, stimulating, and family oriented childcare center that allows parents to work worry free, knowing their children are in the best care.

We achieve this objective by working towards the following goals:

  • Ensuring a child’s first experience outside the home is positive by providing a loving and supportive environment that is safe and conducive to learning.
  • Instilling in each child an understanding and appreciation of himself/herself.
  • Advancing learning by utilizing appropriate developmental curriculum and inspiring children to discover the world around them.

Encouraging social, emotional, physical, and mental growth, while also preparing children mentally and emotionally for elementary school.
Children are born eager to learn, our role as caregivers is to provide an environment which feeds their hunger and children are encouraged to explore and be curious! We take pride in creating an environment where children feel safe and loved; where they can learn about their emotions and gain social skills.

Play Laugh N’ Grow believes that children learn from everyone, be it an adult or another child and that they benefit from interactions with children of all ages. Our primary goal is to support each child’s sense of wonder, joy and desire to explore the world and people around them. As children successfully engage in collaborative play and work with their peers and teachers they become eager learners and gain self–confidence. We encourage the children to express themselves in a myriad of ways, through a curriculum that is developed by both the teachers and children!

A child’s early years are the most influential of his or her life, and we feel privileged to serve the children and families at Play Laugh N’ Grow!
