Creativity Grows Here

We believe play cultivates creativity. Our open-ended, child-directed philosophy encourages children to experiment and make discoveries. We want children to hang onto the spark that allows them to see infinite possibilities, and try new things so they can grow into innovative adults capable of creative solutions to the challenges of the 21st century.
