The Atelier of Play
A community support group open Mondays & Fridays In Vellore Woods
honouring the playful life of the unhurried and unscheduled child
Welcome to the micro-classroom. Gather with a few friends, head over to our community studio and get ready to embark on an adventure-filled day of play! The Atelier of Play is open Fridays and Mondays for a half day or a full day. This not a daycare or a program or a workshop or a camp but a new way of responding to community through the authentic (ex)change of ideas, listening, action, and reflection. We engage through mutually respectful relationships and actively participating with the immediate environment of the community through play. Located in Vellore Woods in Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada the Atelier of Play honours the unhurried and unscheduled child and opens up a space for child-directed play within a democratic learning environment.
