Millbrook Community Preschool

Millbrook Community Preschool at Grace Church is a small, village-based preschool for three to five-year-olds. Beginning with a less-than-ideal space and a passionate vision for play-centered learning, Millbrook worked with Community Playthings room planners to create a compelling environment for children to play and learn.
  • Millbrook directors explain how they dreamed, planned, and worked to make their vision of a play-based center a reality.
