Creative Preschool


Registration is now open for our new Creative Preschool with Ms. Ariel!

Creative play makes for creative, compassionate problem-solvers

The creative preschool at Figment is based on the belief that creative expression and play are fundamental to your child’s emotional development. Monday through Thursday, Ms. Ariel leads her class of three to five-year-olds though a variety of sensory, exploratory and hands-on activities designed to spark each child’s unique imagination.

Ariel has created a loving and safe environment that fosters creativity and analytic thinking. Each day’s rhythmic routine includes creating art (painting, printmaking and wet-felting are current favorites), circle time (songs, games and stories) and practical tasks (gardening and cooking — the gluten free pumpkin muffins were delicious).

Our preschoolers also engage in ample outdoor play and — weather permitting — enjoy lunch picnic style. Time spent with Figment’s bunnies (Blizzard and Rocky) and chickens (Bobbi Jo and Rizzo) provide fun, hands-on lessons in compassion and nurturing.

About Ms. Ariel

Ariel Hedstrom has six years of experience in early childhood education. Children are immediately drawn to her soft, loving presence and her education philosophy is rooted in kindness, empathy and creative play.

From the parents of a former student said: “Ariel has the innate gift of teaching children art all while they are learning, growing and having fun. Children naturally flock to her fun-loving methods of exploring and creating art. She has fostered our daughter’s natural interest in art, and her methods kept our child highly engaged and interested.”
