PARENT/CHILD PROGRAMS





Open Studio: Play and Create!

The TransformEd Creative Studio invites you to participate in an open studio experience! You and your child will have the opportunity to explore around the various Reggio Emilia inspired spaces (indoor and outdoor - weather permitting) that promote relationship building, imaginary play, creativity, and inquiry while interacting with materials such as sand/water (sensory), blocks, loose parts, magnets, light table, mirrors, mud kitchen, art supplies, and much more. Come and play, create, and learn with us!

Don't miss this chance to see what our studio has to offer without the commitment of our longer programs!

Mixed Ages: Birth-8 years old with Parent/Caregiver (Studio is setup to support various age groups all at one time - ***for a complete experience with the entire studio setup for you child’s age specifically, please inquire about our six or twelve week programs that are by age).


Our Open Studio days, are a wonderful opportunity to become acquainted with our space and learn more about what we offer!  It may also work for your family if you are unable to commit to longer six or twelve week programming...



Exploring Everywhere for Infants!

The TransformEd Creative Studio invites you to participate in a learning experience that encourages your infant to use their whole body and five senses (what they can see, hear, touch, smell and even taste) to gain independence, confidence, motor skills, vocabulary, and even improve their memory. Beyond songs and stories, you and your baby will have the opportunity to explore around the various spaces (indoor and outdoor if the weather permits) that promote musical encounters, visual arts (e.g., edible painting) opportunities, while interacting with materials such as instruments, puppets, light table, mirrors, egg shaped crayons and much more.

Don't miss this chance to bond with your baby through the joy of exploration!

Age: Infants - Birth to 18 months with Parent/Caregiver







Discovery Days for Toddlers and Preschoolers

The TransformEd Creative Studio invites you to participate in a Reggio Emilia inspired experience that encourages your toddler/preschooler to use their one hundred languages of expression (the many ways they can learn and express themselves) and ignite their creativity, curiosity, communication, collaboration, and overall confidence. Beyond books and paper/pencil tasks, you and your child will have the opportunity to explore around the various spaces (indoor and outdoor) that promote relationship building, imaginary play, and inquiry, while interacting with materials such as sand/water, blocks, loose parts, magnets, light table, mud kitchen, art supplies, and much more.

During our class, we also have some structured group time for stories, songs, and or any relevant discussions.

Don't miss this chance to bond with your toddler/preschooler and for them to socialize with other children of the same age!

Age: 18 months to 4 years old with Parent/Caregiver





Curious Children for Multi-Ages and Stages: 

The TransformEd Creative Studio invites you to participate in a unique offering that allows you to attend with two or more children of varying ages.  The Curious Children for Multi-Ages and Stages is a combination of the Exploring Everywhere, Discovery Days, and Igniting Inquiry programs.  It is meant for our youngest learners to interact with older learners and together experience the and co-construct meaning about the world around them.  The studio will be arranged with various materials that are developmentally appropriate and challenging for all.

Don't miss this chance to bond with your children! It is also a great opportunity to attend with a friend who has a child that is of a different age or stage than your own!

Mixed Ages: Birth - 8 years with Parent/Caregiver






Igniting Inquiry for School Aged Children

The TransformEd Creative Studio invites all curious minds to participate in a Reggio Emilia inspired emergent curriculum experience that encourages the hundred languages of expression (the many ways they can learn and express themselves) and ignite their creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, questioning, and overall confidence (21st century skills). Beyond books and paper/pencil tasks, your child will have the opportunity to explore around the various spaces (indoor and outdoor) that promote relationship building and inquiry, while interacting with materials such as mirrors, clay, sketch pencils, sand/water, blocks, loose parts, magnets, light table, mud kitchen, various other art supplies, and much more. Based on their interests and wonders, we will begin to document a project of their choosing and study our learning within inquiry meetings. The children will become empowered as active participants and protagonists in their own learning experience. They will essentially form a research team! Each week we will review documentation of what happened prior, engage in hands-on creative learning to dig deeper into our inquiry questions and plan our next session together. Parent(s)/caregiver(s) involvement throughout this planning process will also help us to extend our sessions into the home.


I look forward to bringing this curious group of leaders together and seeing what magic and discoveries unfold!


Please note that the children can take a snack break whenever they feel hungry or relax with a guided yoga break.


Inquiry is a process that cannot be rushed, and as such, it is recommended that you consider signing up for two sessions (12 weeks - three months) to get the most out of this creative experience!

Age: 4 to 8 years old (Drop off program - Junior Kindergarten to Grade 3)





Drawing, Painting and the Arts as a Process for School Aged Children

The TransformEd Creative Studio invites all creative artists to participate in a Reggio Emilia inspired emergent curriculum arts experience that encourages the hundred languages of expression (the many ways they can learn and express themselves) and ignite their creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, questioning, and overall confidence (21st century skills). Beyond books and paper/pencil tasks, your child will have the opportunity to explore around the various spaces (indoor and outdoor) that promote relationship building and creative expression, while interacting with materials such as mirrors, clay, sketch pencils, sand/water, blocks, loose parts, magnets, light table, mud kitchen, various other art supplies, and much more. Based on their interests and wonders, we will go deeper with the skills of drawing, painting and the arts as a process for learning.
