Toddler and Preschool Classes
"We like to say that the child is competent but it is not enough just to declare this. If we really want the child to be competent, we have to change time, space, roles and rules to permit this competent child to exist."
-Carlina Rinaldi, President of Reggio Children & University of Modena and Reggio Emilia
Yellow Bird Studio is committed to providing an environment where the artistic and expressive life of children is both respected and treasured. Our process art based classes encourage children to grow through the exploration of a wide variety of materials along side the support and encouragement of an adult. Scroll below to find the class that is right for you and your child! (Session dates are at the bottom of the page.)
We are pushing the tables out of the way, laying out paints, paper and other basic art materials and letting the littlest artists have their own time at Yellow Bird Studio! We also provide time for sensory and "heuristic play" opportunities every week to engage their minds and bodies to develop their creative and critical thinking. It is a great time for you to connect with other caregivers too! This class is best for children ages 12 months through 30 months. Come dressed for mess!
