Cultivating CURIOSITY, EMPATHY, CREATIVITY, and COMMUNITY through PLAY is at the heart of The Inc.'s Playschool philosophy.

With 90% of a child’s critical brain development occurring by the age of five, The Inc. Playschool is not a drop off point or a holding tank, it is a nest for our youngest coworkers - our mini INCers - to grow their hearts and minds through play.  Through responsive caregiving and reflective teaching, our commitment is to foster a community of learners to be the critical thinkers and collaborative partners of tomorrow.
