In the Children’s Depot Playschool classroom we believe in playing, and that learning occurs during developmentally appropriate, child-centered activities. Children learn concepts best when they are meaningful and relevant to them. They acquire knowledge through the active exploration of their environment. The teacher’s responsibility is to provide a learning-enriched environment, which provides stimulating and challenging experiences for the children. More than just another children’s daycare in Whitefish, our teachers act as facilitators: encouraging, promoting and reinforcing a child’s attempts, questions, skill development, and discoveries.
Daily Activities include: Classroom Freeplay, Music and Movement, Story Time, Outdoor Freeplay, Gym play, Literacy, Nap time, Snack time, Lunch time.

“The Children's Depot at The Wave has been my saving grace as a parent of 3 small children! The facility itself is kept extremely clean and organized and has separate areas for children of different ages and for eating/drinking. The staff are incredibly warm and welcoming and make sure that kids enjoy their time there. Any questions or concerns that I have had have been responded to promptly and professionally. My kids LOVE going there and knowing they will not only be safe, but will have an awesome time gives me extra peace of mind!”
“The Playschool at the Wave has been a wonderful addition to the children's programs! I love that it is geared towards younger children to help prepare them for preschool in a fun, activity-based environment. The staff are well-qualified and wonderful with the children. The program itself is very well-organized and the coordinator is wonderful about communicating with parents. This is a great alternative to typical "daycare" as children have structured days filled with activities, lessons and fun! They have done an amazing job taking extra precautions during COVID-19. The facility is clean, safe and a great place for kiddos!”
