Who we are


Play Frontier aims to remove the barriers of cost and availability by forming a nonprofit child care center (Frontier Center for Child Development) and an adult education hub (Frontier Center for Teaching & Learning).  These two parts make us whole, because children are only as strong as the community that loves and cares for them.

In practice, this looks like children being agents of their own learning through observing, questioning, and discovery, along side supportive adults who do the same.
