About Us


After attending the NAEYCE Convention on early childhood education in 2011, Tim and Kim Stevenson set out to create a unique learning system that facilitates increased physical activity and play to develop the whole child including teaching important “soft skills.” They began to construct and introduce the Explorative Play Learning System with their own center. It was an impressive standing ovation from 20,000 leading educators after Paley said “It’s time to get government out of the classroom and put PLAY back into the preschool.”
