About us

A Growing Place Philosophy

We believe that children learn best through play. Our purpose is to provide a warm, inviting, and well-equipped setting where our students are free and safe to play and learn. The equipment and the program are both selected and planned to stimulate social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth. It is our hope that the students’ experiences at AGPP will lead them to feel good about themselves, promote satisfying friendships, and help prepare them for dealing with their expanding worlds.

AGPP also offers a two day full day program at the St. Olaf location. 

The program uses the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards as a guide for curriculum and planning, and also utilizes Creative Curriculum as its foundation.

All of our 4K sections follow the DeForest Area School District required curriculum and are lead by Wisconsin Department of Instruction Licensed Teachers.
