Studio Creative Play’s principle philosophy is that children are happiest when lovingly nurtured and engaged in a stimulating environment where they can freely create, learn, and explore. Guided by energetic and talented educators and artists, the Studio experience offers children, parents, and extended community the opportunity to develop together early creative foundations that insure a life process of inspired self-education.
There is nothing more essential to the balanced and joyous emotional, social, and cognitive development of the young child than the regular opportunity to grow through play. At the Studio, creative play is the salient activity and exercise that naturally enhances the child’s confidence, development, and imaginative expression.
Studio Creative Play is committed to enriching the child’s imaginative expanse through a relationship-based program. Paramount to our approach is providing children with a spacious and enlivening environment, supported by the presence of gifted teachers who are passionate about connecting purposefully and compassionately with children and parents. In this alternative and versatile play studio, children have consistent opportunities to reconnect and foster secondary relationships.
All Studio Creative Play teachers are extensively trained in our philosophy and mission which includes the primary tenet of interacting with children, parents, and caregivers in a mindful, compassionate, and patient approach that encourages co-learning and co-teaching.
With a Holistic Process Approach to authentic play and the arts, one’s imagination is the most important tool in this universal creative adventure. The theme-based Studio programs focus on a global exploration of our world, where it is never too early to inspire the mind of the young child to explore beyond that with which they are immediately familiar. The Studio experience makes big, wondrous ideas of our world accessible in a language and medium that children of each age range can easily translate and tangibly enjoy. The whole child emerges through theme-based sessions structured around play in the following diverse and integrated art forms:
- Creative Movement
- Musical Expression
- Sign Language
- Image Exploration
- Tactile Exploration
Studio Creative Play hosts special presentations featuring dance and theatre troupes, magicians, artists, writers, and musicians offering our children rewarding exposure to artistic series.
The quality of a child’s creative experience in the Studio is exponentially heightened by the enthusiastic and committed participation of the parent and/or caregiver. The Studio’s programs are designed to offer parents and caregivers a wealth of knowledge for interacting with the young child in a way that propagates their holistic development and strengthens creative parenting and bonding.
