               "Almost all creativity involves purposeful play"- Abraham Maslow

Art

Our Art Stuio is the perfect place to encourage children's creativity and ability to get messy! The children have free range of the room to paint,including the floor, walls, and their bodies. 

Benefits: The unrestricted exploration allows for children to grow socially, cognitively, emotionally, and physically. 

Play-Based Learning

It's crucial that from an early age, children are able to discover their own interests by imagining, exploring, and investigating. This is why our program is centered around Weekly Themes that peak the children's interest. 

Examples: Weekly Theme of science, dinosaurs, and colors

 

Benefits: Learning through play helps children develop social and emotional skills,learn abilities and limitations, broaden imagination, and expand on vocabulary.
