Sunflower Creative Arts is a nonprofit organization that offers programs for children of all ages and parents. We believe hands-on learning experiences in Play, Nature and the Arts are absolutely essential for healthy human development. The pillars of Sunflower’s educational philosophy are Respect for the Individual, Learning Through Experience and Learning Within Community.
- Children choose their own activities and are encouraged to express feelings and opinions.
- Parents receive resources, mentoring and support to make their own choices about what works best for their family.
- Emphasis on hands-on, sensory experiences in Play, Nature and the Arts, including opportunities for process-oriented art, music, science, nature exploration, movement and dramatic play.
The mission of Sunflower Creative Arts is to give children the freedom to discover their unique passions and the support necessary for each one to develop a strong personal voice. A key component to fulfilling this mission is providing children with opportunities for learning through Play, Nature, and the Arts, while increasing the community’s understanding of the importance of these experiences for healthy child development.
At Sunflower we are play advocates. We view play as a basic human need– as vital to children’s growth as food, water and sleep– as well as a catalyst for learning. But beyond that, we value the experience of pure joy, wonder and self-awareness that play brings to people at all stages of life. We believe play makes for better friends, parents, partners– people– and, ultimately, a better world.
