Philosophy and Mission
Plan, Do and Talk is dedicated to providing superior learning experiences
for children that will support and contribute to the success and well-being
of children and families.
Our staff accepts children and families as unique individuals. Therefore,
expectations about what children can do are tailored to each child's
Because individuality and inventive ideal are promoted at Plan, Do and
Talk, children are given the freedom to explore without experiencing
failure. As a result, children who attend Plan, Do and Talk become life-time
learners who develop self-confidence and strong decision-making skills.
Plan, Do and Talk began approximately in 1974 and was started on the
premise that children come to plan their own activities, do those activities,
and then talk about those experiences.
Ron and Sue Neufeld purchased Plan, Do and Talk in 1981. At the time,
it was a day care center. Over the years, parents have become more and
more involved in the school and have requested new programs.
Currently, we have a morning only preschool, all day preschool, half-day
and all day kindergarten, first, second, and third grades, and a before/after
school program. In the summer, we offer summer camps for children ages
2 ½ to 12 years. Our primary school (K-3) is chartered by the
Ohio Department of Education and the preschool is licensed by the Ohio
Department of Job and Family Services.
