Child Education Playshops

The Classroom Innovated

We’ve been observing what makes children’s imaginations & hearts sing, for years. Our playshops let kids and the planet grow. We call it ‘natureal education’. We challenge children to be them. To ‘sit in their element’…creating, innovating, moving, laughing and loving. It’s the work of kids ! Here’s what we do:
