Janet is very proud of the Playgroups programs. Playgroups Plus is known for its outstanding academic curriculum and is recognized by area schools for its
superior academic, social, and loving curriculum through which children are prepared to make an enjoyable transition into kindergarten.

Playgroups Plus is a state licensed preschool and is fortunate to have very little turn over in its staff. Staff members have education degrees, are CPR
certified, and take continuing education classes to enhance skills and to keep them informed of new ideas that the children will benefit from.
