Director Bio

Alan Berger is living his passion!

Ever since 1992 when he became involved in the inclusion movement - placing children with disabilities in regular education settings with support - Alan wanted to direct his own inclusive preschool where all children are welcome. This dream became a reality in September 2001.


With a Masters Degree in special education and early childhood, Montessori experience, a background in ethical education and a desire to give young children the best education possible, Alan brings an eclectic background to the philosophy of Peace Through Play. 


In 2009 Alan was extremely honored to be awarded The Champion in the Trenches Award by Child Care Resources of Rockland. 


Alan has two grown and wonderful daughters, one that at the age of 29 has been working at Peace Through Play for over seven years.  He is married and lives on the school property. Owning and directing Peace Through Play Nursery School is his greatest passion in life.
