Child Education Playshops.

The Classroom Innovated

We’ve been observing what makes children’s imaginations and hearts sing for years. Our playshops are what kids and the planet need to grow. We challenge a child to be them. Our space lets children ‘sit in their element’…creating, innovating, moving, laughing and loving. This is what kids do best and they need space to just do it!
