Child's Play is home to Delaware's FIRST and ONLY Certified Nature Explore Classroom! 

Child's Play by the Bay is a small child development and resource center that offers preschool and childcare services. We offer morning and afternoon preschool sessions. Parents can extend the preschool day by adding childcare before and after preschool. Our licensed and insured facility features a full kitchen, a fenced-in outdoor classroom, and a nap room with individual sleeping areas, two play rooms, and a separate preschool classroom. Kids are able to have a snack and lunch, take a nap, or play with friends all in a small home-like setting. 


The goal of Child's Play is to nurture happy, well-adjusted children. Here you will find a supportive, educational environment for children to play, learn and grow. 


We recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles and personalities. We use a balanced assessment process that shows our commitment to early childhood education while helping us to identify children who may require early intervention or assistance. Our highly qualified teachers and staff are committed to working with each child to ensure optimal social, emotional and educational results.
