Find a treasure. Seek a story. Build a world.
All children need to be given room to play at their own pace, materials to tinker with, and time to develop elaborate projects out of their own ideas. In NYC, economic inequality is vividly apparent when comparing public and private early childhood programs. We have responded to this crisis by facilitating play time in libraries, and educating parents on the importance of play in healthy child development. We are committed to supporting teachers and families as they relate to children through play.
Experiment & Investigate
At Find & Seek, we facilitate young children's exploration of a wide range of open-ended arts materials. We transform environments to be more conducive to children's free exploration. We help children to explore materials in new and unique ways, and we facilitate as they develop their ideas into improvised stories, installations and performances. Our toolbox includes an ever-expanding collection of loose parts which help children to access meaningful inquiry and reflection.
Since 2012 we have been hosted by schools and organizations such as Brooklyn Public Library (Big Brooklyn Playdate), Artscetera, BEAM Center and Paradigm Kids. We have led free workshops for young children at the Red Hook and Bedford branches of the Brooklyn Public Library. We offer professional development for schools. We are collaborating with the Alex House Project and the Brooklyn New School Infant Toddler Center planning team to strengthen early childhood education in Red Hook Brooklyn.
