At Figment, we believe that creative expression and play are fundamental to every child’s emotional development, and Monday through Friday, we lead the kids through hands-on activities designed to spark each child’s unique imagination.
To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission and infection, we have reduced class sizes and encourage students kids to wear masks indoors. We will also take advantage of our outdoor spaces, including our Mud Kitchen and Butterfly Garden.
A typical day includes:
- Creating process art
- Exploring sensory stations
- Learning through play
- Circle Time for stories and songs
- Outdoor play and gardening or, in case of icky weather, time in the Discovery Lab

This class focuses on play-based learning and process art
Part of our child-directed philosophy is play-based learning. Play is the basis of experimental learning and we offer a multitude of sensory and art-based activities to help develop your little one’s fine motor skills and confidence.
We believe the process of making art is more important than the outcome. Adults guide children by providing the right materials, teaching technique and assisting along the way. When children take charge of their own creative process, they practice critical thinking, make their own decisions and build confidence.
About the Instructor
Amy Hawkins is originally from Corpus Christi and has a B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Texas. While interning at the Texas School for the Deaf’s Pre-K program, she fell in love with early childhood education and in 2014, she received her Masters in Elementary Education.
Having worked with children in a variety of settings — including play-based preschool, special-ed inclusion, and Reggio Emilia and Montessori programs — Amy draws from a range of education ideas to create an environment that supports creativity, exploration, and child-guided learning. She believes the classroom should encourage focus, independence, and creativity. It should also be a community, where children learn from one another.
