“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.” - Maria Montessori
It is our deepest intention for little bodies to learn through movement and play; with novel, enriched and fun experiences that support the developing child. The Playspace will rotate a few items seasonally which adds to the interest of the children. It is also important that the favorite items remain for comfort and familiarity.
We have intentionally set our pricing to encourage families and the community to frequently come together and develop a sense of community. If this is a hardship, please contact us.
All are welcome and accepted in our space. Due to the size of our room we limit the amount of children and adults to maintain a safe and pleasant experience for everyone. Please sign-up below.
Drop In Rates $8 per child.
