About The Art of Play Preschool in Billings, MT

Where preschool learning meets the art of play

The Art of Play is a preschool learning center for children three to five years old. Whether your child is just beginning their journey or getting ready for kindergarten, our focus is providing a fun and nurturing environment that instills a lifelong love for exploring, learning and creativity.

In a carefully prepared environment and using Montessori-inspired educational principles, the children enrolled in our early learning program learn through playing and exploring the environment around them. The children are guided by a loving, certified teacher that focuses on following each child's individual developmental learning path through self-directed activities.

Through this process, the self-directed activities assist the child in developing curiosity, creativity and critical thinking skills. This focus on the child's experiences also aids in molding each child into an individual who respects themselves, those around them and their surrounding environment.
