Woodland Playhouse: A History

In the spring of 2006, Grace Louis created Woodland Playhouse in her Phoenicia home. With the help of a grassroots group of parents, lots of enthusiasm and some elbow grease, Woodland Playhouse opened in Grace's home in the Fall 2007.


In 2017 Grace partnered with Christina Davis and moved to the present location at the Phoenicia Plaza, maintaining the home-spun flavor of the original school. Christina and Grace worked together to expand Woodland Playhouse to meet the growing needs of the community without losing what made Woodland Playhouse unique.


In the summer of 2019, Grace accepted a new position at a local school, and Woodland Playhouse has since been under the direction of Christina Davis who continues to provide high-quality care and education to children.

In December of 2021, Christina led Woodland Playhouse through the purchase of property approximately a half a mile from its current location at the Phoenicia Plaza. Since that time, Christina has been working with the town, surveyors, builders, and architect, and a civil engine to break ground and build a beautiful new space to accommodate two preschool classrooms, a toddler classroom, and several outdoor play spaces for this community.  Stay tuned for more updates!
