Who We Are
We are an art and play-based preschool, with a huge emphasis on social-emotional development and humane education. We serve children 3 months through 6 years of age.
What exactly is play-based?
And how does art help a child develop?
Play is the journey in which children collect and process information, learn new skills, and practice old ones. Children experience purposeful play when their potential for learning is enhanced by knowledgeable adults and the addition of objects of inquiry.
At The Makers Club, you will see Teachers getting on our students’ level, and engaging in conversation, asking open-ended questions, and providing an array of materials (to get messy with!) and explore. This is all part of the Teacher gently, yet intentionally, leading children’s learning and facilitating purposeful play.
is behind everything we do.
An intentional Teacher uses their knowledge and expertise to create learning experiences for children, and by taking advantage of each and every teaching opportunity that arises throughout the day. Keeping in mind the different development domains, an intentional Teacher moves through their day with specific outcomes in mind, leading children to these goals through their interactions in play.
Art is a medium in which children are able to use multiple senses at once, providing a rich learning experience, and exciting environment for young children. We provide daily opportunities for process art, in which children create using a variety of materials available, with no real end goal in mind. Process art is a powerful experience, as it allows children to develop mindfulness, and create a sense of ownership and control over what they are creating.

The health and safety of the children in our care have always been at the forefront of our program. The onset of Covid-19 has amplified our mission to keep our students healthy. We have implemented several protocols to prevent Covid-19 in our school, and we are proud to say that our protocols, coupled with our partnership with families to mitigate the spread of Covid, have been extremely effective. Our Protocols Include:
Childcare Security That Works
We keep your children safe with Procare’s Keyless Entry, Interior Door Control, and Biometric Fingerprint Check-In Scanner systems.
Keeping Our Center Secure
Keyless Entry, Interior Door Control and Biometric Fingerprint Check-in systems allows families and staff to take control of building access and security.
Real-time access, drop-off and pick-up records
Our system keeps a live record of who enters our building, allowing us to monitor building access in real time or print a daily log. The Biometric Fingerprint Check-in Scanner gives our staff an accurate record of those picking up or dropping off children at our center.
High Tech Security
Any ID code can be activated, changed, disabled or placed on a restricted list directly from our computer at any time, providing a safe, secure environment for children and peace of mind for parents.
No keys or swipe cards
Unique ID codes are assigned to each family, eliminating the cost and hassle of lost keys or magnetic swipe cards.
Coded gated entry with designated parking area for safe and secure drop-offs.
Safety and wellbeing for children, staff and families with contactless QR code and GPS check-in
Ensure your children are safely and securely checked in to our center without the need for close, in-person contact. Parents can easily check their children in and out using our smartphone app.
