A home away from home.

If you’re looking for a safe, nurturing place for your young child, consider St. Michael Playhouse. The first Waldorf/Steiner-inspired Daycare in the Philippines, we offer unhurried, loving care for the whole child – mind, hands, and heart.

St. Michael Playhouse addresses the needs of working parents who would like to give their young child a sound, safe, wholistic home away from home, or those who need qualified partners to assist in co-parenting their young child.
