Due to the popularity of Creative Tots, class passes for Creative Tots are temporarily sold out.
Grab your toddler (ages 1-3 years) and come on down to Creative Tot Mornings hosted every Monday-Thursday between 10-10:45AM. Creative Tots season runs throughout the school year. Creative Tots will resume the Tuesday after Labor day. Creative Tot Mornings are specifically designed to help your growing toddler explore art for the first time in a variety of different ways. Your child will have the opportunity each class to engage in new and exciting art materials and strengthen fine motor skills such as lifting a paint brush, squeezing, pinching, and sculpting. Our studio offers toddler height tables and chairs, a sink for cleaning up, water tables, toddler size smocks, and just about every art material you can imagine!
*We do not offer this program in the Summer. (We are very busy with our summer camp program at that time.) All passes must be used up by Thursday, May 24th. Classes will resume the Tuesday after Labor Day. Tuesday, Sept 4, 2018.
What’s the format of Creative Tots Mornings?
Each class is designed to help your child develop an understanding of the world around them. Classes begin with story time. Toddlers and their grownups will listen, watch, and experience a different book or story each week. Following the story, toddlers and their grownups will be presented with activity centers & or projects designed to SPARK imagination & foster growth in your tot.
For example: If we read the book: The Rainbow Fish toddlers would complete their morning by creating different projects and participating in activities:
- painting ocean water with different textured paint brushes
- blowing bubbles and making their own bubble wands
- creating a sand dough that can be rolled, pinched, and sculpted
- looking at shells, coral, starfish, and more in our very own touch pond
What’s the cost?
Each morning that you & your tot attends costs $8.00. Choose the number of classes you would like to attend & complete your purchase by filling out the form below. Creative Morning Tots can be attended at your convenience anytime. Classes will be offered throughout the entire school year. Sept-End of May.
Is it okay to just drop-in for a class without a pass?
No. We only prepare enough materials for class-pass holders. If you would like to try-out a class, you must buy a class-pass. If you decide you would not like to use your class pass, we will refund you for the remaining number of classes.
Where are you located?
We are located off of Loveland-Madeira Road in Symmes Township. We are next to Corner Coffee Cafe and across from Shady o’ Gradys.
Where do I park?
Please park in the rear grass lot on the left side of Main Avenue. Please come through the white picket fence. If you park in the Coffee Shop/Antique shop spots we will have to ask you to move.
What age is Creative Tot mornings best for?
We find that tots who are 18 months is the best age to begin the program. We understand that tots who are 18 months are likely to be experiencing a class for the first time! It is okay if they need to walk around, take a break, or even let out some cries. Classes are aimed to toddlers ages 18 months – 3 years. If you are looking for your toddler (ages 3 and up) to be more independent, check out our preschool class passes.
Coming in Fall 2018…
The Art Spark will be hosting Creative Tot Mornings Monday – Friday at 10 AM. We will also host a new program call Painting and Pastries one Saturday a month from 10:30-11:30 AM. More details to come on that program soon!
