Why Arts-Based Learning?
Art is beautiful and fun, and research shows that creating it has a profound neurological effect. The doing of art, even more than mastery, has been proven to increase foundational academic skills and assist in all types of future learning. The Studio Garden is a licensed Music Together  school, offering Music Together's early childhood curricula rooted in 30+ years of research and application. The Studio Garden also offers a rich spectrum of visual arts, movement, and story-based exploration.
Why Montessori Methodology?
The work pioneered by Maria Montessori is one of the most effective educational systems to foster independence, creativity, and a passion for learning – a true realization of self. 

All materials are made for the child's size giving them a true sense of being 'at home' and capable of leading their own learning.

Studies show that Montessori techniques create a higher level of curiosity in children that lasts long after their pre-school years.
Why Nurture Through Nature?
Today's urban children have become so disconnected from the outdoors that 'Nature Deficit Disorder' has been coined as a new term describing these negative effects. The Studio Garden connects children to nature to kindle a love of beauty, heighten observational skills, and increase empathy – helping children realize their place within nature and their power to nurture the world around them. 

Why Child/Adult Learning?
Learning with a trusted adult has been proven to dramatically increase the success of learning, creating physical changes in the quality of neural networks in childrens' brains.

Learning together deepens the bond between child and adult, creates a seamless link between school and your home, and instills a life-long love of learning.
