STUDIO TERRA follows the core philosophy, mission, and approach of SCP, offering arts-based learning on a foundation of a loving, nurturing, stimulating, teacher, parent, and child community. With focuses on global environmental and cultural awareness, and social development within the creative group, children and teachers develop and achieve compassionate communication. The unique and emergent voice of the newly five-year old child is celebrated in solo and collective projects and field exploration. At Studio, our children’s growth is hinged upon their connection with their own creativity amid their friends, teachers, family, and the world.

Studio Terra evolves out of the Venni Studio experience, through curriculum and schedules that provide greater structure, depth, and capacity for enhanced creativity. The key daily social-emotional focuses of the program are Mindfulness, Friendship, and Collaboration with regard to all activities. A continuous active focus is placed on maintaining and contributing to the aesthetics and the care of Studio. The children and teachers maintain a consistent practice of caring for the environment and being resourceful with tools, materials, and space as a part of this community practice.

In addition to the arts and community-based anchors of the program, children are provided daily learning in kindergarten/first grade core academics. These curricular foundations infused with Studio’s creative programming inspire and prepare Studio Terra graduates for a strong and well-versed matriculation to a diverse group of schools and learning institutions for the First Grade.

Please note that as a bridge program, Studio Terra Kindergarten is also included in both the Studio and The Roberts Field School community and is supported and supervised holistically and academically by the leaders of both program administrations.
