Deconstructed Play

Build critical thinking skills through exploration of everyday objects in new and unusual ways. Loose parts play allows your child to use their imagination and autonomy to play in their own unique way.
Each week, our instructor creates new and thoughtful provocations to stimulate the curiosity and creativity of your child. There is no wrong way to engage with our deconstructed play materials.Watch as your child’s personality comes to life. You may see her take materials and create an artistic display. Or your son may bring dinosaurs into the play space and create an imaginative play scenario involving the animals. Perhaps your daughter is developing her STEM skills and will use our loose parts to learn about various engineering properties. 
The beauty of Deconstructed Play is that it’s different each week and will stimulate a new area of your child’s brain as they engage differently with the materials.
