Embracing the interests of our children goes well beyond INVITATIONS. When we notice our children are incredibly interested in a certain subject, we do our best to create entire spaces in our PLAYROOMS dedicated to that interest – these spaces stay up for days, weeks, and even months. They allow our children to delve deeper into their play and curiosities.
We have always used REAL TOOLS in our play – modeling and guiding our children to navigate these tools safely. Today we replaced our LIGHT PANEL AREA with a tool/workbench space. The light panel is still accessible and the tools have been around for a while and had a previous home on one of our activity trays. Now, however, there is an actual creative space dedicated to building with tools.

We are excited about the new places this space will take us and look forward to sharing it with all of you.
Interested in where we get all of our supplies….well, here ya go….
