Where children are free to play and learn.

Since 1949, Play Mountain Place has provided a humanistic, self-directed, alternative, experiential, play-based, child-centered, child-directed, progressive, primarily outdoor learning environment in Los Angeles, California.

Here, preschool and elementary-aged children discover the joys of learning through their own interest, at their own pace, all while being supported with the deepest respect for their dignity and worth.

 

LIVE with Kelly and Ryan

Play Mountain Place got a nice mention on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, June 26. Kelly Ripa was discussing the rise of Forest Preschools and it reminded her of her friends Liza and Jamie Persky who attended Play Mountain Place in the 1970s.
