Creativity Classes are designed to foster children’s joyful learning about the world and themselves – and parents’ understanding of how to support that learning. We offer classes for children 15 months all the way up to 10 years old. Please refer to the course descriptions for specific skills and knowledge that each class supports. Accommodations can also be made for children with special needs.
