5 years ago, I opened Explorations Play Studio as a safe haven for children and their parents who value the importance of authentic play. My desire was to create a nurturing oasis that appealed to both children and adults; and that offered enticing, open-ended materials encouraging creative play in a serene setting.
But in doing so, I didn’t pull out a manual, or follow step-by-step directions. So when I began hearing parents, educators, and therapist say that they, too, wished they could have a space like Explorations, I decided to make it my mission to be able to share with others, step-by-step, how to create similar spaces.
In addition to wanting to share with others this 7 step process, I discovered I had passion for bringing other like-minded people together. It always makes my day to connect with others who are on the same page and value their child’s innate desire to explore and discover. However, tending to children’s play environments as such, is not mainstream, and so being able to join together is key.
Because I feel so strongly about helping others reach their dreams and desires, and bringing like-minded people together, I have now created the Playspaces Transformed program and a community called the Collaboration. if its right for you, I would love for you to join us!
