About Our Programs

At Studio we offer a vast spectrum of programming for children 2 to 5 years old. We are passionate about the interdisciplinary web of arts, music, science, and nature in learning. Our program is founded upon guiding children and parents in play through these omnipresent, interactive elements and ornaments of life. 

Core to our educational philosophy is awakening the young and growing child to the interconnectedness of life, relationship, creativity, and nature around our globe.

Studio offers a comprehensive program, educating and enriching children and parents without evaluations in the process. Instead of being goal oriented, the program is grounded in experience, allowing projects and activities to organically evolve from the flow of ideas and natural interactions. Whatever a child absorbs or learns during their Studio experience becomes a positive contribution to their holistic growth and helps the parent understand and facilitate their own child’s creative process.

Studio's programming nurtures holistic creative capacity and consciousness through a intentionally structured experience, guiding the individual child within the group and community.

Key programming components are:

  • community and creativity-based programming centered on the holistic nurturing of the young child and their families/caregivers.

  • a comprehensive creative expression curriculum.

  • dedicated and expert relationship-based guidance in art and education.

  • theme-oriented, multi-faceted creative play sessions.

  • special event series.

  • early childhood creative play enrichment guidance for families.

  • documentation of the creative process.

  • a spacious, inspiring, and versatile play-space.

  • a program structured towards the convenience of family and child.

Family Participation

Creative  play with the active encouragement and participation from family members and caregivers maximizes the benefits to a child’s emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive development. As families, no other engagement of activity with the child is as important or as effective as this direct form of presence and nurturing. At Studio, we provide ample time for family participation and we rejoice through bringing our families together through special events with their children as one whole community.  When families gather with their children and the teachers we request that family members be focused foremost on the children, being present and assisting them in their exploration and content of the experience.

Through the mission of  Studio Creative Play, Venni Studio nurtures the conversation and relationship-based programming as primary tools to inspired learning and enrichment. Here, children are listened to and celebrated as individuals. They are encouraged to spawn ideas, reflect, and direct their own investigations. Throughout their time with Studio, children are also guided to collaborate, connect, and communicate compassionately and mindfully. Studio teachers support the child’s collective and individual holistic growth through

a perceptive, patient, and loving approach.

At VENNI, children are engaged by visiting artists, musicians, writers, and educators who allow them blended and expert perspectives in curricular areas. The inspiring indoor and outdoor environment is the full expanse upon which the Studio program thrives, both in the organic learning structure

it fosters and the creative freedom it promotes.
