Dreaming Up Brighter Futures
A message from our Co-founder:
During the five years I spent as a nanny, I specialized in developing age-appropriate activities for school aged children.
I found that as a caregiver getting kids participate and learn organically was always easiest using a "learn through play" method.
To curate items for items for this year's backpack drive, I called on my experiences as a Montessori inspired nanny.
Each item was carefully selected for inclusion to encourage S.T.E.A.M based learning!
When I grow up
I can be anything!
