This Spring, we will focus on creativity—the ability to imagine original ideas or solutions to problems and bring them to life.

We'll help kids develop creative mindsets and strategies they can use throughout their lives to invent new things, solve problems, express their ideas and feelings, and to nurture relationships. We’ll do it all through enriching, outdoor play!

The core lessons follow a steady progression and are organized into three units:

  1. In our Building Blocks unit (lessons 1-3), we focus on the Three B's: breaking, bending and blending. We use these three core processes when we are creative.
  2. In our Creative Thinking unit (lessons 4-6), we use "pretending" to explore divergent thinking and discover many possible solutions to problems.
  3. In our final Creative Expression unit (lessons 7-9), we explore how we can express ideas and feelings through art, music, and movement.

Just what we were looking for!

This class is the highlight of our week. The day and time are perfect for wrapping up the weekend with something social and enriching that requires no planning. The location is lovely and you can come early or stay late to explore the property. I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know with kids in this age range. Wonderful for siblings, too. We talk about it all week…what we did the Sunday before and what might be in store the next class.

Play = Learning

"For a child there is no division between playing and learning; between the things he or she does 'just for fun' and things that are 'educational.' The child learns while living and any part of living that is enjoyable is also play."  Penelope Leach
