Find a treasure. Seek a story. Build a world.

Bringing Play to All

In NYC economic inequality is vividly apparent when comparing public and private early childhood programs. 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. Our response to this crisis is to provide more options for play time and more creative solutions for play spaces. We are developing Loose Parts Kits for schools, homes and organizations.

Experiment & Investigate

At Find & Seek, we facilitate young children's exploration of a wide range of open-ended arts materials. We offer support in the form of art education and play specialists. We work with schools and organizations to help children develop their ideas into improvised stories, installations and performances. We are constantly developing our toolbox to include the most interesting loose parts, and the most powerful tools to aid in meaningful inquiry and reflection. 

 

Support & Partner 

Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 we offered materials/story workshops in the Red Hook Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. We intend to continue offering free workshops for children in Red Hook, specifically children of the young mothers of Alex House Project. Our fiscal sponsorship through World Education Endeavor enables us to accept tax-deductible donations. Meanwhile, we offer ticketed classes and are developing partnerships with schools around NYC.
