Built Through Play
Our services are designed with the purpose of providing children with a strategy and skill set to practice inquiry, action, experimentation and grit. Through these processes we hope to celebrate childhood while preparing children for a creative and actionable journey.
All of our workshops are co-designed with experts in each field and therefore echo their individual subject interests and play queues. Our team is eclectic however we are all connected by the common interest of inspiring children to grow up as adults with unstoppable curiosity, optimism and enthusiasm both in dealing with adversity and success.
