SALT Playhouse by Montgomery School

At the SALT Playhouse, we are committed to providing a learning environment where the children’s social and emotional development takes center stage. During their time at the Playhouse, children will collaborate with peers to socialize and problem solve, as well as self-express through a curriculum rooted in the fine arts. Preschoolers are made to feel right at home and are given endless opportunities to express themselves through dramatic play, storytelling, music, and movement. They will establish foundational social and pre-academic skills that will support their transition from home into the classroom as they build confidence and recognize school as a place they love to be.

Meet the Teachers

The SALT Playhouse has been a perfect fit for my four year old. She has thrived in this loving environment! She is advancing in her academics but more importantly, her communication and empathy skills have grown tremendously. The teachers have such a gift for leading with kindness, and the creative activities and lessons are so unique. My daughter absolutely loves going to school. We love the emphasis on outdoor learning with the beautiful grounds and stream at Montgomery School.  This has been such a special year and we feel so fortunate to have this opportunity for her. The love of learning and creativity in expressing herself will be a lifelong gift.
