Spirit At Play Early Childhood Program

Is a premiere Missoula area preschool with an emphasis on sustainability. In addition to the fun and exciting learning and play time (both structured and unstructured), the benefits of recycling and composting are encouraged. This helps minimize waste and we factor these concepts into our curriculum planning. In fact, we have achieved Champion status, the highest level available, with the Montana Sustainable Business Council  in their Strive Towards Sustainability program by demonstrating significant integration of environmental and social sustainability practices throughout the organization.

Established in 1991, Spirit At Play Early Child Program in Missoula, Montana is more than just a child care facility or preschool. Spirit At Play offers a comprehensive kindergarten readiness program for toilet-trained children between the ages of 3-6 years during the school term, as well as a fun and active program for children up to age 9 during the summer session. The staff of Spirit At Play strive to follow the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) guidelines for high quality early childhood programs.

In 2010, we were honored to be chosen to participate in the Stars to Quality incentives program. This wonderful program has helped fund several projects at Spirit At Play.
