Our school is located in the Historic White Cross School on highway 54, 5 minutes West of Carrboro. The White Cross School was built in 1933 based on the designs of the Rosenwald schools in the area at that time. Today, it has the charm of the old school house it once was, and provides a unique and beautiful place for the children of Our PlayHouse to play and explore.
The main building consists of four classrooms with large windows and original hardwoods, fanning off from a central gathering space often used for art and special events. An addition built in the 1940’s to accommodate the school’s cafeteria now houses our Parents Morning Out program for toddlers. We have two playgrounds as well as vegetable and herb gardens, both providing ample space for play, creativity, and discovery.
In Chapel Hill, children attend either morning preschool from 8:30am-12:30pm, or full day preschool from 8:30am-3:00pm. We offer early care beginning at 7:30 for those families that need an earlier start to their day.Apply to Our PlayHouse Chapel Hill
